The Director of the Major Paul Syverson Veterans Sanctuary, also known as Paul’s House, a homeless shelter for veterans, has informed the Patriot Guard Riders that Vietnam War Era Navy Veteran Harry Phillips has passed while in their care. No family is expected to attend his services. We have been asked to stand to honor his service to our nation as he is interred with full military honors at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery, Monday, June 20. We will be there to ensure that Harry gets the honor he deserves as he goes to his final rest.
