Flags # Half-Staff For FRANK BUCKLES.

Frank Woodruff Buckles (2/01/1901 to 2/27/2011), who was America's "Last Living Doughboy" of World War I, will be laid to rest with full military honors today in Arlington National Cemetery. His final resting place will be near that of General John J. ("Black Jack") Pershing, the commanding officer of the
American Expeditionary Force (A.E.F.) during World War I.

Today, Tuesday, March 15th, 2011, to commemorate Frank Buckles' service to our Country and to coincide with his Memorial Service, I am flying three Flags at half-staff in front of my home. The current U.S. Flag (50-Stars), a 48-Star U.S. Flag (the then current Flag that Frank Buckles served under in both WWI & WWII), and the U.S. Army Flag.

Rest In Peace, Frank Buckles !
