Today, is, as many of you know, Veterans Day, or as you guys in other countries call it, Remembrance Day. So, I got the day off of school. :^D
However, on monday my Global Teacher told my class about Frank Buckles.
In case you don't know, Frank Buckles is a 107 year old man, who is known as the only american WWI Veteran living today.
Here's a link to the Article on Wikipedia.

The last surviving Canadian WW1 veteran lives in the USA now.

Most Canadians wish he would agree to a state funeral when he does die, as a way for us to honour all those who served in that war. But he doesn't want that.

My grandfather served in WW1. He was a bugler in the calvary and used his wits to stay out of the trenches. I've been thinking a lot about him today. [Happytears]
