NATO Electronic Warfare
In his final active duty assignment, Phil (front left) served as deputy director and operations officer of NATO’s Joint Electronic Warfare Core Staff, a small unit comprised of soldiers, sailors, airmen and civilians from 16 allied nations. They provided hostile electromagnetic environments in which NATO land, naval and air forces prepared for combat. Phil helped consolidate three NATO commands into one, and expand the unit’s training-only mission to also support operations in the Balkans and Afghanistan.*
