    Many people believe that the last WW I vet to die was Frank Buckles. Thats not exactly correct.

    Actually the point of this thread is that the World War involved more than the US.

    Frank Buckles was the last WWI US Citizen to die. Actually there are still a few more vets from other countries still alive.


    It the same when asked how many survivors were there at the Battle of Little Big Horn. The usual response is none as Gen Custer's entire unit was wiped out - BUT - most of the Indianians survived!
