| Frank Buckles, American Legion
Foundation Honorary Chairman Frank Buckles was featured in The American Legion Magazine "Rapid Fire" with the story "Not for his sake, but for theirs."
Writer Christopher Lancette reports
"Frank Buckles nearly tumbled out of his wheelchair as he made his way along the crumbling stone walkway leading to the District of Columbia War Memorial on the National Mall in Washington. Algae had turned green the once-white dome of the memorial. Invasive plants had overtaken the open grove around it."
