Doug was a good man

Doug and I were classmates in high school and entered the service at about the same time he in the Marines and I in the Navy. Neither knew what we were in for after (some might say) struggling in our respective experiences at college. Doug had an enormous amount to offer. I am still deeply saddened to realize that he gave and left it all in Viet Nam.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear LCPL Douglas Whiting Young, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice 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. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

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

Curt Carter
