His name is Tomas Young, he is simply a man who went to war-for what he thought were the right reasons and only realized that he had been betrayed. Mr. Young joined the army after 9/11 and went off to war in Iraq because his president told him that Saddam Hussein had something to do with 9/11. On his initial days in Iraq, a bullet hit his spine and another bullet his his knee. He would never walk again as he did in younger days. Mr. Young suffers from pain and is under medication. He sent a last letter of his life to former President Bush and his partner in crime, one Dick Cheney
His letter noted that thousands such as himself had gone to war under the belief the war was justified. “I and millions who served know fully well who you are and what you have done. You may evade justice, but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, plunder and finally of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Americans–my fellow veterans whose future you caused to exist.”
Mr. Young has decided to die.
