    Default Bush Meets With Last American WWI Veteran

    Bush Meets With Last American WWI Veteran
    President Bush has met with the last surviving American veteran of World War I.

    Mr. Bush said it was his honor to welcome Frank Buckles to the White House Thursday. He said the 107-year-old Buckles' mind is sharp and his memory is crisp.

    The president said Buckles, who signed up for the Army at the age of 15, shared interesting anecdotes and has a "vivid recollection of historic times." Buckles was stationed in Europe during World War I. He also served in World War II, and was a prisoner of war in the Philippines.

    Mr. Bush thanked Buckles for his patriotism and love of his country. He said meeting with Buckles was one way to honor the service of past and present military personnel.

    In the Oval Office news appearance, Buckles sat in a wheelchair next to the president. His daughter, Susannah, also was in attendance.

    Good thing no lefties saw him or they'd have assaulted him or suicide bombed him.

    Other than that... I think it's fantastic that he's went through so much and yet managed to enjoy a full enough life.

    It is the soldier, not the campus organizer, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

    It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.

    I am astounded that at 15 he was experiencing more in life than many today don't even experience well into their 20s. And he voluntarily lied about his age to do it!
