From The Mountain
Mark J. Tidwell
I pulled up in front of Jellico’s U.S. Post Office the other day and quickly noticed Old Glory waving briskly at half-mast. I couldn’t for the life of me think of why it was so. I inquired inside and was told it was in memory of America’s last doughboy of World War I. James Webb, former Jellico Postmaster, had given me the clipping of Frank Woodruff Buckles’ passing quite a few days before, so I was surprised that so long after the fact the vet was being recognized.
