Last month marked the 90th anniversary of when America entered the Great War. President Woodrow Wilson called it the war to end all wars. More than 4 million Americans were mobilized for World War One. Only four remain. One of them is 106-year-old Frank Buckles of Jefferson County. As we head into Memorial Day weekend, Cecelia Mason talks to Buckles about his memories of two wars, his life today, and his gratitude.
