  1. If that’s William Buckwheat Thomas, he’s buried in the same cemetery as my grandmother. And his tombstone states that he was a PFC US Army World War II. But he was born in 1931, so that would make him about 10 years old when he signed up.
    Somebody made a mistake – he was a Vietnam veteran.

  2. Correction about Buckwheat’s military service:

    “Thomas enlisted in the US Army in 1954, and was released from active military service in 1956 decorated with a National Defense Service Medal and a Good Conduct Medal.”

    His tombstone is still incorrect with the WW2 reference.
