Visitation for Buckles will be Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. at Joseph Gawler's Sons Chapel and again from noon to 9 p.m. Monday.

Buckles will then lie in repose from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday in the chapel beneath the Memorial Amphitheater at Arlington Cemetery. He will be buried with full military honors in a public ceremony at 4 p.m.

With his death, researchers say only two of the approximately 65 million people mobilized by the world's militaries during the first World War are known to be alive: an Australian man and a British woman, 109 and 110, respectively.
