At the age of 110, Veteran Frank Buckles passed away in his home in West Virginia. Despite being the last surviving WWI veteran, Buckles actually lied about his age to serve his country — he was 16 and a half when he enlisted in the army but said he was 18 in order to qualify.

Steve Centanni has the story on this veteran’s service to his country.
