Authentication of POW Status

   Julie Phillips, wife of Sgt. Bramwell G. Phillips, received this confirmation of her husbands' POW status.

   It is unclear why the words "honor roll" appear here as Sgt Phillips was released from captivity in 1945.  He had been held as a POW since D-Day and was liberated from Stalag 3C Alt Drewitz Brandenburg, Prussia 52-14
