Dr. Sid Phillips enlisted in the United States Marine Corps the day after Pearl Harbor because the Marines promised to put him "eyeball to eyeball" with the Japanese. Two years later, he came home a hero. Together, Sid and his brothers in the legendary 1st Marine Division won the first epic victory of the war, saved Australia, and stopped the Japanese juggernaut in the Pacific. Today, Sid is a figurehead for the World War II generation, having become internationally known after his role in Ken Burns's documentary The War and the Tom Hanks/Steven Spielberg/Gary Goetzman miniseries The Pacific.
