The Best

I was a Lt in Bill Phillips company when he was killed. Never did I meet a better officer or a finer person. It was one of the most sorrowfull events of my tour in Nam. To this day I vividly remember him and, when in D.C., always stop by the Wall to spend a few minutes.

As Time Goes On.

Bill's been gone 45 years now, but he still lingers in my mind. I was 15 years old when we lost him. It seems as if his loss is still on peoples minds. Not a week goes by that an old friend, classmate or family members brings him up. Small in statue, big in heart. If you knew him, you loved him. A Soldier, A Leader, A Son Husband and Father. He was my Brother and I miss him.

Wish I Would've Known You

Although I never knew my grandfather, William Leroy Phillips, I wish I would've gotten the opportunity to. He blessed me with the best, loving daddy that a daughter could ever ask for. I never knew him, or his family, but just comparing pictures of him & daddy makes me smile. Daddy is a shining image of him. I took a trip to the traveling wall today & got a picture & a paper to scratch his name on. Just to see his name warmed my heart.

To William: I wish I would've gotten the chance to meet you, and I hope one day down the road I will. I may not know you, but you have a special place in my heart just like my other grandpas do. Thank you for all you did for this country. See you someday.
