Congressman Mica on the passing on Congressman Bill Young
October 23, 2013
I am deeply saddened by the passing of my colleague, a great Floridian and wonderful friend for more than four decades, Bill Young. Florida has lost an effective and powerful leader, and while one of our military and veterans' strongest voices has been silenced, his legacy in support of American patriots will live on.
In recognition of all the hard work and his commitment to our veterans the Bay Pines Veterans Hospital will be named in honor of Congressman Young.
