Tomas Young and the Iraq War


Nathan and Tomas Young 

Last fall I met an incredibly dignified and courageous man, Tomas Young.  He served in Iraq, where his unit was ambushed, resulting in his becoming paralyzed from the waist down. 

Not long after he got home, he began going around the country giving talks on his experience, and being  bluntly honest about the real motives behind the war–meaning profit.  This resulted in Phil Donahue producing a documentary about Tomas and his experiences:  Body of War.  The documentary’s due out this year.  I can’t wait to see it.  This guy does have guts, not to mention a mountain of integrity.
