Secretary of the Army Pete Geren quote
Secretary of the Army Pete Geren, referring to Cpl. Frank Woodruff Buckles, now 107, the last surviving American World War I veteran.

Today's young men and women from our generation, the best of this generation too, are joined in a war in a far-off land that will shape their future and the world's future for decades to come. As with Frank Buckles' war, some day this war will end and all will come home with their lives and the world forever changed and the vivid and searing memories of their war will live with them throughout their days on this earth.
