IIRC, this isn't the first time that the unhinged left has regarded standing there and silently smiling as a threatening gesture when it suits then.

Everyone who enlists in any service has an 8 year obligation. Depending on the branch, either 2,3,4 years active duty, and the remainder of the 8 years IRR (Individual Ready Reserve), unless you voluntarily join a Reserve unit. So yeah, once he was discharged, he had 4 years left in the Reserve unless his discharge was less than honorable.

Most likely not a Vietnam vet, but a Vietnam era vet.
He's going to skate on this because he has said that he is a "Vietnam times" vet; he let everyone else assume he went to Vietnam, so that's going to be his "out" - wait and see.
Andy, He stated he was a Vietnam veteran. He is quoted in a 2008 article in "Indian County Today" --
Phillips also described coming back to the U.S. as a veteran from Vietnam. “People called me a baby killer and a hippie girl spit on me.”
He also did an interview in which he described being a "recon ranger".
He was a reservist who never left the US. He's poseur and should be listed in "Stolen Valor"
If you search for the 2008 article in "Indian Country Today" the original article was altered on January 22, 2019 to reflect Phillips' current spin of "Vietnam times", but there is a link to the archived article available . I am posting a link with a video by retired Navy seal Don Shipley about Phillips' DD-214, but be warned if you want to hear about Phillips' DD-214 there's some vulgar language in it so view at your own risk.

Language Warning for embedded video.

I think his discharge is simply listed as "discharged". He went AWOL three or four times and was still a private after 4 years.

It wouldn't matter if Phillips were Carlos Hathcock; he acted like a petulant child, harassed high school kids, lied about it repeatedly, got the benefit of the doubt from the entire left-leaning media, and then doubled downon his lie.

The guy is trash.

Just for technical and historical accuracy, at the time of his and my enlistments, the commitment was just six years. It was increased to 8 years either in the late 90s or early 2000s. But you could always enlist straight in the reserves and only do your active duty for training and then go to a reserve unit. This is what Phillips did.

A person who served an enlistment on active duty and then did his time in the IRR is rarely called a reservist. It would be true, but their active service generally is recognized and the IRR is ignored.

Not entirely true. Not defending this guy, but his record shows almost 2 1/2 yrs active duty. Yes, he was a reservist. Also, it is possible to serve in the IRR (for which you get retirement points, but not enough for a "good year" that counts towards retirement). You can, however, gain enough points for a good year in the IRR through "participation." You can participate in Summer Camps, and/or drills with a local unit, and build those points. At least that was true in my day (1962 - 1984).

Video of him talking about his service to his country.
“Honorably Discharged”,“box checked “in theatre””, “ I don’t talk much about my time in Vietnam”.

I don’t talk much about my time in Vietnam either, cause I’ve never been there.

There's a phrase for Marines who separate as an E-1 but I don't think it's allowed on this forum.

Some folks cross referencing his military records and his civilian criminal records are finding that Phillips' AWOL periods may coincide with being locked up for civilian offenses. Apparently he was trouble both for military and civil authorities.

https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/poli ... s-teenager
Phillips, who was 19 at the time, was “charged with escaping from the Nebraska Penal Complex where he was confined May 3,” according to a May 9, 1974, article in the Lincoln Star. The court approved a bond of $500 and set a preliminary hearing for May 14.
He pleaded guilty to assault on June 19, 1974, and was fined $200. In addition, he was charged with underage possession of alcohol in 1972, 1973, and 1975, as well as negligent driving. A destruction of property charge against him was dropped in August 1973, but Phillips was sentenced to one year probation for a related charge of alcohol possession by a minor.

I apologize for saying he went straight to his reserve unit. I made the statement based on other reports that he had only been a reservist. If he was active duty at a regular unit, he was not just a reservist, especially if it was for over two years.
