Honoring the Last WWI Veteran, Frank Buckles

The last US veteran of WWI, Frank Buckles, has recently passed. He deserves special recognition for his participation in a war more devestating than anyone alive can imagine.

Please take a moment to complete the contact form on Speaker Boehner's website. Paste the text below into the comment box:

Speaker Boehner, Take a moment to acknowledge the special place in America that Frank Buckles holds. He is the last of a generation that suffered tremendously for the benefit of all Americans.

Please consider allowing Frank the position of honor he greatly deserves. As a veteran of two combat tours in Iraq, I feel how the nation treats him now represents the country's respect for all veterans.

Support any initiative that allows our nation to recognize and strengthen by letting him lie in honor in the US Capitol rotunda.
