To visit the World War One Memorial is to witness true decay.

Mr. Buckles was the last Dough Boy

to march on to eternity. As a patient at Walter Reed for some

loser war, I visited the badly

neglected WW I dome. I was shocked

by its condition. America has no

appreciation for its heroes from The Great War. That no federal funds would be spent on this adventure confirms yet further obscurity for The War To End All Wars.
