As a member of the Army National Guard and a student in his third year at Norwich University, Phillip looks at Veterans Days through the lens of all the people who have served and died before him. He is grateful for the skills he is learning and the incredible assistance he is receiving toward his education. Currently enlisted and just beginning his military career of service, Phillip comments on Veterans Day, “it is a symbolic representation of soldiers from the past and future, it is when we take time out of life and completely say thank you for your sacrifice for our well being.”
