This one trip they asked me to bring in a new truck so they could put a wrecker body on it. Then they mounted a new car up on the back of it & took U-clamps & clamped the car to the frame of the truck. I stopped in Chicago because I had had very little sleep & I was traveling alone that particular trip. I knew I just wasn't up to staying awake that long. I went into the train depot & found a serviceman standing in line to buy a ticket. I asked him if he would consider driving as far as Utah with me, driving part time, and get his ticket out of Salt Lake. He was happy because that saved him some money. I was so tired. I went back & got in the car & went to sleep. Something woke me up just as clear & distinct as could be. The car was on a 45 degree angle. One of the clamps had broken on one side & the car was leaning. I laid on the horn & got him stopped, & some people stopped & helped push us back so we were able to get the clamp started. We nursed it into the next town. They put it on a hoist & clamped it on again. I wasn't sleepy the rest of the trip! The Lord has been very good to protect me in that respect.

On our honeymoon at Yellowstone, we got in our swimming suits and went up to the water where it comes down cold yet there is a flow of hot and we'd get close to that so the water wasn't cold or hot and we'd slide down into it. It was fruit season so we had brought some pears and they were in the car. As we were getting ready to go swimming all these people outside were hollering & we thought "my word, what's the matter?". Our back window was rolled down & a bear was in there eating the pears. So we opened both doors so it could go out either way. Taken from "The History of Gloria Carter Young"

Life timeline of Lawrence Jay Young

1925
Lawrence Jay Young was born on 13 Jun 1925
Lawrence Jay Young was 14 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.

Lawrence Jay Young was 32 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
