Last Doughboy

Frank Buckles, the last surviving World War I U.S. veteran, passed away last night. I had the privilege of photographing Mr. Buckles several times during my times at The Journal.

Buckles lived in a gorgeous home outside of Charles Town, WV. He was one of the most fascinating person I have ever photographed.

This is a shot when, then, Governor Joe Manchin honored Buckles at his home in 2007.
