Young: Help all those wounded vets; John Young, Cox newspapers
A book from my childhood about Medal of Honor winners has a chapter about him: "Too Young to Fight." The Texas boy lied about his age at 17, his face and physique betraying him to the Marines who turned him away. Enlisting in the Army at the stroke of 18, he was nicknamed "Baby." Then he become one of World War II's most highly decorated warriors. From there, Second Lt. Audie Murphy graduated to the rank of movie star and, away from the set lights, to basket case.
