Description: Mr. Julian Philips, a native Houstonian, joined the Texas National Guard and committed himself to two years of service when he was just 16 years old. In 1940, when the U.S. began preparations for entry into World War II, Mr. Philips’s unit of the National Guard was mobilized for federal service—he was only eighteen at the time. After a year of federal service and following the dramatic events in Europe, Mr. Philips realized that his scheduled release from the National Guard was not likely and that serious business lay ahead.
