Phil Wood’s Photos

APRIL 1942 – JULY 1944 

Philip Wood commanded Able Company’s weapons platoon, and then their mortar section, from his commissioning in 1942 until his death on Saipan in 1944. He took notes on almost all of his photographs, and mailed them home in letters to his “Dear Girls” – his mother Margaretta, and younger sister Gretchen.

All images on this page are from the collection of the webmaster, and were provided by Gretchen Wood Williams.

  1. Dear Gretchen:
    I am fascinated to see this account of Phil and his family. I always think of him on Memorial Day. I hope you are well.
    Best wishes,
    Bill Busing from Swarthmore
