Captain Stephen Phillis, a native of Rock Island, Illinois, was an A-10 pilot at the Myrtle Beach Air Force Base during the time when the United States military was preparing for Operation Desert Storm in response to the lraqi occupation of Kuwait.
He and his unit were deployed to Saudi Arabia in 1990 in support of that operation. While on a combat mission in northwestern Kuwait, his wingman was shot down by enemy anti-aircraft fire. Captain Phillis immediately organized a search and rescue mission for his wingman. While doing so, he was hit by enemy fire and was killed in the ensuing crash of his A-10
Captain Phillis is buried in Memorial Park Cemetery in his hometown of Rock Island.
