U.S. Army, Killed In Action (KIA) on D-Day, June 6 1944.

Sgt Buckler is buried in the American cemetery in Cambridge, England.

This is a memorial for him at his parents graves which are located in a small cemetery in Barstow, Md., which is just west of Prince Frederick, Calvert County, in what's known as Southern Md.

Another part of the story left unsaid: Some 20 miles further south, just down the road, during W.W. II there was an Army training base at Dowell, near Solomons, Md. All amphibious landings that the military needed training for was done here. For places anywhere in the world including the coast of France. That's right, the D-Day invasion was practiced here. All done in the security of the Chesapeake Bay near the Patuxent River. And all very secret. This was a small town area and easier to keep prying eyes out. And yet 1,000s of Marines and G.I.s passed thru this base to get the training. Some say over 68,000. Today, the Calvert Marine Museum in Solomons has a very good exhibit on this base. Remnants of it exist today there but unless you know the story, it won't make much sense. Much of it has been redeveloped in housing.

Sgt Buckler may have spent some time there. He may even have gotten a weekend pass a few times since he was from around the area. He may even have taken some of his G.I. buddies home for a good home-cooked meal now and then. Will we ever know? Does he still have some kin alive who may know? I hope so and that they see this page one day. Then we can add more to the story!
