Thomas Young's Last Letter

Yesterday, Pearl Jam posted links to an article about and a letter by Thomas Young, the Iraq War Veteran featured in the Ellen Spiro and Phil Donahue documentary, Body of War.

Thomas has begun hospice care, and Truthdig columnist, Chris Hedges sat down with him for an interview and published the story under the title, The Crucifixion of Thomas Young.  He also posted a letter written by Thomas to former President George W. Bush and form Vice President Dick Cheney titled The Last Letter.

From Pearl Jam: 
We ask that today, the 10 year anniversary of the Iraq War, you read and share the following.
The documentary, Body of War, can be purchased here or streamed on Netflix.
