The Uncle I Never Knew

Thank you all for the kind and grateful comments. Jerry was my father's (Eddie) older brother and one of my life's regrets is that I never got to know him being born well after his death. Please, if you have other stories of your service with him or if he was a friend from your school days I would love to hear some stories. I'm sure my father and family would love to hear from you so if you would like to contact any of them please let me know. ~ Thanks!

Friends forever

This was my fathers best friend, they did everything together. Though it hurts my father to talk about it to this day I know their is not a day that goes by that he doesn’t think about him. Jerry lost his life at such a young age but this fallen soldier will never be forgotten.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Jerry Owen 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, Sir

Curt Carter
