Steve Phillis Medal of Honor Project

This section of the website documents progress and information regarding our class' efforts to get classmate Capt Steve Phillis' Silver Star upgraded to the Medal of Honor.

 

Background:

 

As an A-10 pilot during Operation Desert Storm, Steve sacrificed his life while trying to direct close air support on Iraqi forces threatening his downed wingman, Rob Sweet. Steve was posthumously awarded the Silver Star for his actions that day.

In June of 2021, our class president, BGen Jim Demarest initiated a class project to get Steve's Silver Star upgraded to the Medal of Honor. You can follow those efforts here.
