Dean Young is a Republican candidate who has sought election as a staunch supporter of the U.S. House to represent the 1st Congressional District of Alabama.
Dean Young represented the true American story about a boy who was raised in a broken home in Mississippi. At the age of sixteen, Young dropped out of high school and went on to join the United States Air Force with the approval of his mother to give their family a better life.
During his enlistment, he became the youngest platoon leader in the entire history of the air force. Young then was put in charge of nearly 50 men to watch over and command during their basic training. Young also received special recognition and attempted to join the special forces of the Navy Seals.
After a short time in the program, Young was injured and was given an honorable discharge. After his release, he continued to study business at the University of Southern Mississippi and graduated at the top of his class at the age of twenty years old.
Today, Dean Young resides in Alabama and is the proud father of his three children and a doting husband to his loving wife Jan for over 29 years.
