Col. Young .*
(Continued from Page 1)
United States Milita'ry Academy at
West Point, the Class of 1918, and
served overseas with the Army of
Occupation in Germany upon the
termination of World War I. He has
served as an infantry officer in the
Philippines and as White House Aide
for part of the Coolidge and Hoover
administrations when he was at the
time assigned to the Army War Col-
lege in Washington, He holds a de-
gree of Doctor of Jurisprudence from
New York University and an honor-
ary degree of L. L. D. from the Uni-
versity of Miami. Prior to becoming
Commandant of the School, Col.
Young served as aide de camp to the
Commanding General of the Second
Corps and First Army at Governors
Island, N. Y., then as Assistant Pro-
fessor of Law at West Point and
later as Chief of Branch in the Mili-
tary Affairs Division of the Judge
Advocate General's Office. As an
indication of the growth of the School
under his leadership, at the time
the School was established there were
only two other officers on the staff
and faculty as compared to the pres-
ent staff and faculty of 36 officers,
most of whom are graduates of the
JAG School Commended
During Col. Young's tour of duty
as Commandant of the Judge Advo-
cate General's School 1,501 officers
have been trained for duty with the
Judge Advocate General's Depart-
ment. Of that number 888 attended
officer training courses and 613 at-
tended officer candidate courses and
were commissioned second lieuten-
ants at the successful completion of
their training. During the past two
years the Judge Advocate General's
School has twice received commend-
ations from Majgr General William
L. Weible, GSC, Director of Military
Training, Army Service Forces. The
latest report commended the mili-
tary atmosphere of the School and
the manner in which the Command-
ant had organized the personnel,
facilities and material for effective
instruction. A similar commenda-
tion was recently received from the
Director of Military Training of the
Sixth Service Command.
"One of Finest"
In a prepared statement published
in. the 4rmy and.Navy Journal last
week, Gen. Cramer characterized the
School as "one of the finest service
and training schools in the Army. In
a spirit of keen competition they
(trainees) are given an intense train-
ing fi military law and related sub-
jects which qualifies them for the
varied legal assignments as officers
of the Judge Advocate General's De-
partment." In addition to the offi-
cer training and . officer candidate
courses maintained at the School, a
series of monthly courses in con-
tracts and readjustments were in-
stituted by the Army Service For-
ces under Col. Young's supervision
in May, 1944 for the purpose of train-
ing commissioned officers to act as
legal members of contract termina-
tion teams and equip them for work
in matters related to termination 'of
Government war contracts. In these
courses 406 officers from all branches
of the Army have received training.
