Frank Woodruff Buckles was the final surviving First World War veteran. He enlisted at the age of sixteen. After basic training, he sailed to Europe aboard the RMS Carpathia, which was commandeered to serve as a troop ship. During the war, Buckles was an ambulance driver near the front lines of the Western Front. He was working in Manila for a shipping company at the beginning of World War II. Buckles, along with other non-combatants, was captured by the Japanese and imprisoned for three years as a civilian detainee. After his release, he resided on Gap View Farm which is located near Charles Town, West Virginia.

Buckles was afforded the honor of lying in state at the Memorial Amphitheater of Arlington National Cemetery upon his death at the age of 110. He had a funeral with full military honors and was buried near General of the Armies John J. Pershing.
