Remembering An American Hero

Dear SSGT Leroy Joseph 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

A friend

I identified you when you were killed in Cu Chi as all knew you were my friend. I had been wounded and was in the 93rd evac hospital when you were killed. You are not forgotten.
