  • SIGNER
  • Print #1 in our "Portraits of Valor" Series 

    Pfc. Sid Phillips knew he was a long way from his home in Mobile, Alabama, when he entered the jungles of Guadalcanal in August 1942. A mortarman with H-Company of the 1st Marines (the same company as Robert Leckie), Sid was 17 years old when he entered combat with the Japanese. Some two years later, when he returned home, the jungle fighting on Guadalcanal and, later, Cape Gloucester, had turned Sid Phillips into an “Old Timer” by Marine standards, and more: he left as a boy, but came home, a man.
