(only recent update I can find on Tomas and his condition...  jt, May 2, 2013)

Iraq veteran: Tomas Young with his wife Claudia by his side lies dying in his hospice bed but tells HuffPo he does not hold a grudge against George Bush

For nearly a decade, Young has been living in chronic pain after being paralyzed by a sniper's bullet four days into his first assignment in the Middle East.

Iraq War veteran Tomas Young said (April 25, 2013) he does not harbor any personal resentment against former President George Bush despite being an outspoken anti-war activist who blamed Bush's administration for the war on Iraq.

Young spoke from his hospice bed with his wife Claudia by his side on the same day the First Families - both past and present - gathered to honor Bush's presidency at the opening of a library in his name in Dallas.
