Uncle Doug,

We never met, I was born 21 years after your passing to your little brother Leonard.

I would have loved to have known you, and even though we never met I look up to you beyond words. I, like you, served my country. I spent 12 months in Iraq with the US Army.

I always envision what it must of been like for you, and I'm so sorry for all that did happen to you.

I honor you whenever I can, and I will always continue to do so.

Your nephew,

Darrel

Remembering an American Hero

Dear LCPL Douglas Allen Young, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

Curt Carter
