Never Forgotten

Bill has been in my thoughts daily over the last 32 years. I served with him, laughed with him and respected him. He is never forgotten and never will be. I wish his son could have known him. Rest in peace, Bill.

He remains forever young in my mind and heart.

I have often thought of him over the years. He was a good friend and roommate when we
were going through Infantry Officer Candidate School together in Sept. 1966-March 1967
(5th Platoon, 52nd Co. (OC), Ft Benning, GA). His attitude and sense of humor helped
me to make it through also. Bill was a good man who walked tall at a time when it mattered!
He remains forever young in my mind and heart.

Not Just a Soldier, Also a Brother

William LeRoy Phillips, my brother, died a soldier in Viet Nam. I remember him not only as a soldier but as my big brother. Short in stature, he stood tall when called upon to defend not only his country but anyone who he felt was being belittled or abused. To me he will always be Bill, not the soldier, but the brother that we could count on to be there to listen when we needed to talk and always with a laugh to lighten any situation. Although many years have passed since he was taken, I still miss his quick grin, the laugh that showed in his eyes. I know my brother died with honor serving his country and I am proud of him for that but I was always proud of the way he stood up for what he believed no matter the cost.
Bill, I love you.
