Minnesota Office of the Secretary of State

In honor of Tech Sergeant Phillip Hanger, Air Force - Served in Desert Storm
Hometown: Glendale
(Submitted November 1, 2009 by Mary Hanger)

Although Phillip was stationed in Alamogordo, New Mexico at Holloman AFB, he and his squadron supported the war through their technical skills and knowledge. They were on call twenty four hours a day, seven days a week to support their mission. My husband and every other serviceman's commitment to that war was as valuable as those who were on the front line. My husband volunteered three times to go to Iraq but due to a respiratory illness he was denied. My husband was ready to give up his life for his country and those that served in the United States Air Forces because he believed in freedom. Thank you for your time.
