In 2008, we were honored to be included on the compilation record, Body Of War. Tomas Young, a solider in the Iraq war, who was paralyzed from the chest down during combat, curated the music, along with Eddie Vedder. It was a companion piece to the documentary film of the same title.
And now a new book is being released by Mark Wilkerson, entitled, Tomas Young’s War. It chronicles Tomas’ life before and after his devastating injury and his journey as an anti-war activist up until his recent death.
I highly recommend reading it. It’s especially pertinent during this time. It gives you a close up view of the horrors of war and the hardship it brings to the soldiers and their families.More About Tom Young’s War
