Tomas Young’s War – Mark Wilkerson

Mark Wilkerson was my guest on the March 24, 2016 edition of Tell Somebody, just a couple of weeks ahead of the release of his new biography, Tomas Young’s War. Tomas Young was the Kansas City Iraq War veteran who died on the eve of Veterans Day, 2014, 10 ½ years after being paralyzed by a sniper’s bullet in Iraq. Tomas was featured in the must-see Ellen Spiro/Phil Donahue film Body of War which showed him dealing with his paralysis as he became an effective anti-war voice. Tomas Young’s War covers his entire life, but, perhaps most importantly, tells the story of the struggles he had between the period covered in the film and his death.
