As you know, I've dedicated all of my publications to support America's World War I Centennial Commemoration. One of the grassroots efforts to honor the nation's sacrifice in the war is David Dejonge's biographical documentary exploring the dramatic life of the Last Doughboy – Frank Buckles, who was an absolutely wonderful representative of his generation. This is a project close to my heart because I served as master of ceremonies for the dedication of the paving stone honoring Mr. Buckles at the Liberty Memorial & National WWI Museum in Kansas City.
David needs your help – $14,000 of pledges – to turn his rough-cut into a professional-level theatrical film. He is using a site called Kickstarter for gathering contributions and telling the story of his project. Please visit the site. I've already contributed, and I hope you will too.
