From Congressman Phillips Newsletter

I hope you had a reflective and meaningful Memorial Day.

I was born in January of 1969, right here in Minnesota. Six months later, my father Artie was killed in action while serving his country in Vietnam. I think about my father every day, and his patriotism and selflessness inspires my own service in Congress.

Our country is a crossroads right now. In light of the January 6th insurrection and continuing attacks on our electoral system and voting rights, I can't help but think of Artie and the men and women just like him who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our democracy. We must honor their memories by healing our divisions, recognizing our shared interests, and once again becoming the UNITED States of America.
