Other Comments:
General Young was my dad's Lt, and later Captain, during WWII, in the Second Chemical Mortar Bn and went on to become one of the most highly decorated officers of the 20th century. He served in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam,  as a fine soldier, and an 
inspiration to those who had the privledge to serve under him.
