Dr. Phil Clinger is an 88-years-old World War Two veteran who enlisted in the United States in August of 1941 at the age of 16 and served as an US Army infantryman in the Pacific theater until he was discharged in May 1945 after Victory in Europe Day, or V-E Day as it's more commonly known. Dr, Clinger was stationed at Pearl Harbor during the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 2941. During his service Dr. Clinger survived the Japanese Navy's bombing of Pearl Harbor and amphibious landings at Leyte, Dutch New Guinea, Hollanida and the Philippines.
