As a Gold Star Mother, my heart goes out to Staff Sgt. Phillips' family. I only wish that this family did not have to endure the pain that my family went through. The pain of losing my son Patrick was overwhelming, and not a day goes by that I don't relive it. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Staff Sgt. Phillips, thank you for your bravery and services. You are a TRUE AMERICAN HERO. Rest in Peace.
