It is with deepest sympathy that I announce the death of Sergeant Christopher Dwayne Young, age 20, on 2 March 2007, at Camp Safwan, Iraq. Sergeant Young was the driver of an M1114 that struck an IED.Read the entire National Guard article about Sergeant Christopher D. Young, here, find more at Legacy and visit Sergeant Young's Guest Book.
He is survived by his Mother, Gina B. Wright; Father, Joseph Young Jr.; Grandmother Audrey B. Wright and Grandfather Russell Wright.
Of the many things in life that Sergeant Young enjoyed, his mother said, “He loved football”.
