Letter: Last WWI vet is 109 on Feb. 1

Bluffton Icon:

Would you be interested in putting something in the BlufftonIcon inviting people to send a birthday card to Mr. Frank Buckles (the last surviving U.S. WWI veteran)? Mr. Buckles turns 109 on Feb. 1.

I have a draft that people could sign and forward, if they are interested, and have attached it for you. I am going to get my church, the Boy Scouts, my place of employment (Lima Refinery), and some other groups that I'm involved with to print out copies and have them send them on to Mr. Buckles.
