Happy 110th To Last Surviving Doughboy of WWI

Frank Woodruff Buckles of West Virginia turned 110 today. He is the last surviving Doughboy from World War I, and he ended up in a Japanese POW camp in the Philippines in World War II.

More on him at the Herald-Mail, via This Ain't Hell.

TAH also added this video clip, plus one other that I'm unable to embed.

He visited the White House during President Bush's final year.
