In researching my family tree I was reminded of our connection to Rodger Young, a WWII hero. (He was a cousin of my Grandmother, but I haven't tracked down the exact relationship yet.)

I re-read the wikipedia page and found a couple other sites that talk about him and about the song written about him. This profile, as over-romanticized as it is, especially got me thinking.

When the writers of Captain America re-worked Steve Rogers' pre-serum story, was Rodger Young's story somewhere in the back of their minds?

And now I want to read a story in which Rogers hears about Young's life and death. Maybe Colonel Phillips mentions him as someone else who was considered for the serum project.
