Second Lieutenant Young, a Tuskegee Airman
of the 100th Fighter Squadron, 332nd
Fighter Group, World War II.

Albert died in Czechoslovakia (now Czech
Republic) 100 km to the north of expected area
of the operations. Probably experienced issues
with oxygen supply and lost consciousness.
His P-51C hit the ground close to a small
village of Opatovice and Albert's body was
found 1 km away from the wreck. It is
believed that Albert woke up shortly before
impact, bailed out but his chute failed to
open due to the low altitude.

Resided at 590 S. Wellington Street,
Memphis, Tennessee prior to entering the
service. Service #O-824847.
