First Lieutenant Brian McPhillips, 25, Pembroke
McPhillips was not the type of person to accept failure. For a college project, he created and ran an Internet marketing business, Militarywarehouse.com -- and got an A. McPhillips died in a firefight in central Iraq April 4, 2003. At BC High, he is remembered as a competitive racquetball player and a founder of the Irish Culture club. Before his deployment, relatives asked if he was worried. "I have 150 men and I'm concerned about each and every one of them," he replied.
