Mr. President, the people of America desperately need your intervention to insure that Frank Buckles, (the last WWI veteran) is allowed to lie in honor in the Capitol rotunda.
John Boehner and Harry Reid are blocking resolutions on the floor of the house and senate preventing this honor from being bestowed.
France provided a state funeral with full military honors to her last WWI survivor in 2007 and President Sarkozy attended the funeral.
The UK provided services at Westminister Abbey with full military honors to her last WWI survivor and the Queen and the Prime Minister attended the funeral.
Can America do any less for our last great war veteran and literally, the last one of his generation period?
I think we can do better.
I believe the time has come for you Sir, to step up and take the initiative on this issue.
If you declare the right of Frank Buckles to receive this honor, Senator Reid and Speaker Boehner will stand aside.
The time is now Mr. President, there is only one opportunity to do the right thing.
I sincerely hope that you will choose to intercede and right this wrong.
I truly hope that you will be in attendance at Frank Buckles last Journey and memorial service.
Frank deserves the honor as do the 4.7 million Americans that he represents as the last survivor of WWI.
Do the right thing Mr. President. Intercede and act now, before it is too late.
