The current article infobox lists him as a Private, but he was a Sergeant when he was KIA. Is there something I'm missing here?
- Read the article. He voluntarily requested a rank reduction to private from sergeant when his eyesight and hearing degenerated so he wouldn't risk the lives of others. Bravo Foxtrot (talk) 01:24, 1 October 2012 (UTC)
Mentions of him.
Hello. Not so long time ago I got to this page and readed it. I never know before, who Roger Young was, but name seems familiar to me. I recall that I already saw name of Roger Young in different computer games /2 or 3/ and those ARE NOT connected to WW2. AFAIR "Roger Young" is a name of fictionale space shuttle in System Shock 2 game. That is barely a coincidence. --Oleg Str (talk) 07:48, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
- "Roger Young" was the name of a fictional spaceship in the book Starship Troopers, the video game you remember was probably paying homage to the book. — jwillbur 17:58, 6 August 2009 (UTC)
I came across this article while reviewing a request at DYK relating to the Ballard of Rodger Young. That article will appear on the main page soon (possibly on 31 July, the anniversary of Young's death), so I decided to try to add some references to this article. I've added what I could find from the internet, but there are still quite a few sentences/paragraphs that need references. If anyone can help, that would be greatly appreciated. Some paper sources would be great to balance out the bias on internet sources that currently exists. Cheers. AustralianRupert (talk) 04:32, 7 July 2010 (UTC)
