From the archives: Paralyzed after a firefight, Tomas Young has made peace his new mission

Young, a graduate of Winnetonka High School in Kansas City, North, is one of more than 28,000 military men and women who have returned home less than whole -- wounded physically, mentally or both. And like some of his former brothers and sisters in arms, Young had spoken out against a war that he did not believe in even before his unit deployed in March 2004.
