    Thank you for your service as a Rifleman. We remember all you who gave their all. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

    I was in Washington DC from April 20-23, 2017, for The March for Science with my wife, Sue, daughter, Lexie, and grandson Rio. On Sunday, we stopped at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial so I could find Tinker's name on the wall. I remember playing baseball with Tinker during my years of playing high school baseball. He was a big, fun loving guy who played ball well and enjoyed life. I remember the shock and sadness of learning of his death. And now, 51 years later, still remembering Tinker; gone but not forgotten.

    Philip was a hero to all of the students at Shrewsbury Grammer School. He came to the school before deploying to visit. We all loved "Tinker" and wished him well. I remember sitting in class one day and hearing another teacher, Miss Marie Hamm, come running down the hall yelling between cries, 'they've killed Tinker'. The entire school fell into mourning. our hometown hero was gone. But Phil, I promise you, you will never be forgotten.
