Worth a read: Memories of WWI veterans

I’d like to draw your attention to a certain story in today’s newspaper by Chuck Haga of the Grand Forks Herald. After Frank Buckles, the last surviving American veteran of World War I, died Sunday, Haga wrote about several North Dakota and Minnesota men who fought in the great war and passed on years before Buckles did. You can read it here.

    Thanks for this article. Many of these men were not born in the U.S. but were serving their new country. My father, an immigrant from Russia living in ND, served in WWI and then moved to California to help build ships for WWII. These were remarkable men suffering terribly in that awful war. We need to remember and teach our young people of the sacrifices made by those before them.
