One Response to As Memorial Day nears, a new book on Buckles

  1. Good work Spirit. Your “As Memorial Day Nears….” article brought us back in time to the 1st Great War, which seemed forgotten almost as soon as the 2nd Great War concluded. The linkage to local resident Frank Buckles, last veteran to die, and Rubin’s one-sentence summation of the 20th century, recalled it clearly. Rubin’s sentence is long as sentences go, but it reads like a poem and is worthy of memorization.
