In remembrance of Veteran’s Day, Mustard Seed Theatre is presenting “All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914.” The a cappella musical is based on a true story from the front lines during World War I.
Flags are being lowered in Missouri for the last surviving American to serve in World War I.
Missouri native Frank Buckles died Sunday at the age of 110 at his farm in West Virginia. He was born in the Harrison County town of Bethany and also lived as a child in Vernon County.
Buckles lied about his age to enlist in the Army and served during the war in England and France.
