A friend of Phil Jackson's: A fellow lieutenant in C/3/22, wrote to me of Phil's tragic death. The friend was John Beckett. John was killed about two weeks after Phil. John wrote of how Phil's 2 year old son wanted to buy his daddy a truck so he wouldn't have to walk so much. John thought of Phil as a good friend, and he grieved over his death. This remembrance is posted in honor of a father who gave his life. Billie Calvery.

Happy Birthday Dad! Just remember, when we meet at the big O'club in the sky, I left the Marine Corps as an O-3, you have to buy the first round. Lots of LOVE Your son Anthony Phil. SEMPER FI! Anthony Phil Hillyard.

I will always hold our memories tightly in my heart. Mary Hellon, [email protected]

Remembering An American Hero

Dear 2LT Phil Jackson Dickens, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
