Leading Sailors

Leading Sailors

Phil served in a variety of leadership roles where he was responsible for leading sailors and accomplishing missions. He wrote, “This picture from one of my former squadrons honors the hard-working men and women who make ours the strongest military in history. That strength depends on commitment and contributions from everyone, regardless of irrelevant personal attributes. Leadership challenges arise as American society and the character of war change; and those changes are continuous. My career saw the steady integration of women into exclusively male roles; advancement of more racial and ethnic minorities in leadership; and the recognition, tolerance and eventual acceptance of LGBTQ people as warriors. I’m proud to have played a positive role in these changes, which strengthened our forces. I offer the experience needed to support our military’s leadership as they prepare to fight and win our nation’s wars.”*
