NRA at 150: Two American Icons & Past Presidents

Within the pantheon of American heroes, two gentlemen with deep ties to both the U.S. Marine Corps and the NRA stand out.

Marine & Rifleman–Sidney C. Phillips, Jr.

NRA Life member Sidney C. Phillips, Jr., joined the U.S. Marine Corps on December 8, 1941, and he saw fierce combat action in the Pacifi c, including Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester and Pavuvu. He has shared his experiences on the PBS documentary “The War” and has been featured in HBO’s “The Pacific.” Now retired, Dr. Phillips is a humble hero and an example to us all.
