Frank Buckles, last surviving US soldier from WWI at Arlington National Cemetery

Today the country paid honors at Arlington National Cemetery to Frank Buckles the last surviving soldier from WWI. Flags around the country flew at half-mast today to honor this veteran. Frank's casket laid in the Tomb of the Unknowns Chapel where the Buckles family was visited by both President Obama and Vice President Biden prior to his transfer by horse drawn caisson to section 34 where he was laid to rest near General "Black Jack" Pershing's gravesite.
