Loved and not forgotten

To all those that stuck together through the battles and hard times- to your brothers in the US Army you are all special to us.
To all our service men and women, thank you for your service and thoughts to all the families today on Memorial Day who are missing you all. Love to them all.
Phil's records indicate he was in Co A 3/187 101 St. Airborne, was a SP 3, platoon leader on July 28, 1969 when he was wounded. Passing from his wounds on Aug. 3, 1969.
He was involved in prior engagements having arrived in Dec. 1968. In May 1969, his Brigade 3/187 of the 101 St Airborne was involved in a major battle at Hamburger Hill and awarded the Bronze Star for heroic action on Hill 937 of "A Shua Valley."
A few months later on another mission, while engaged in search and destroy missions his squad was attached by snipper fire and small arms assaults. He was wounded along with several others. He was recognized for distinguished action and heroic leadership in combat and awarded the Silver Star, Purple Heart and several others. He was wounded on July 28th, 1969 and died of his wounds while in the hospital in Danang.

Today my family remembers the Phil we knew and love. He was a quiet kid, but wicked sense of humor. A cool big brother we miss him deeply everyday.
