"Two days after the September 11 attacks, Mr Young, from Kansas City, Oklahoma, joined the Army to serve his country in a time of chaos.
In 2004, Mr Young was sent to Sadr City, Iraq. Four days after being deployed, he was shot by a sniper.
He was hit in the collarbone on April 4 while riding in an unarmored Humvee and was instantly paralyzed.
He spoke out against the former leaders for starting a war that he says achieved nothing but killing and maiming a generation of soldiers, all while furthering America's thirst for oil.
Mr Young writes: ‘I write this letter, my last letter, to you, Mr Bush and Mr Cheney.
'I write not because I think you grasp the terrible human and moral consequences of your lies, manipulation and thirst for wealth and power.
‘I write this letter because, before my own death, I want to make it clear that I, and hundreds of thousands of my fellow veterans, along with millions of my fellow citizens, along with hundreds of millions more in Iraq and the Middle East, know fully who you are and what you have done.’
The veteran continues: ‘You may evade justice, but in our eyes you are each guilty of egregious war crimes, of plunder and, finally, of murder, including the murder of thousands of young Americans – my fellow veterans – whose future you stole.'
‘My day of reckoning is upon me. Yours will come. I hope you will be put on trial.
'But mostly I hope for your sakes, that you find the moral courage to face what you have done to me and to many, many others who deserved to live.’"
God bless you, Tomas Young. I wish you all the best in whatever form it may come. And Tomas, you are right--WE KNOW, WE KNOW, WE KNOW. You will not be forgotten. I promise you that.
