Capt. Bob Philpott, USCG(Ret) SENCLAND Member Honored

CFCC Veterans Center

Cape Fear​ ​Community College named its campus​ ​veterans’​ ​center after longtime student veteran advocate Bob Philpott​ ​as part of a series of events to celebrate Veterans Day on Nov 11, 2014.

Before retiring​ ​as CFCC’s veterans affairs coordinator​ ​earlier this year, Philpott helped establish CFCC’s veterans center on campus three years ago and was well-known for his support of student veterans and their family members.

As a 26-year U.S. Coast Guard veteran,​ ​Philpott commanded​ ​the​ ​US​ ​Coast Guard Cutters​ ​Gallatin​ ​and Vigilant during​ ​search and​ ​rescue missions as well as drug interdiction operations. Bob was​ ​awarded two presidential meritorious service medals​.​

After his service to the Coast Guard, Philpott joined CFCC’s staff in December of 1993, as an economics instructor.​ ​He​ ​then​ ​served​ ​as​ ​dean of​ ​vocational and​ ​technical programs​ ​until 2011. Afterwards, he transitioned into his role as CFCC’s veterans affairs coordinator.

CFCC President Dr. Ted Spring credited Philpott’s dedication to the college’s student veteran population.

“Under Mr. Philpot’s leadership, CFCC was recognized nationally for three consecutive years as a Military Friendly School and is considered a model for schools around the country,” Dr. Spring stated.

Philpott’​s ​distinguished service extends beyond his time in the US Coast Guard.

In fact, in 2007,​ ​he received​ ​the North Carolina Community College System Employee of the Year Award.

The​ ​naming​ ​ceremony was among several veteran-related activities held at the college today. Other events included a forum entitled “Remembering the First World War”, which featured presentations about the creation of war memorials, World War I writers,​ ​and the battle of Verdun. The college also held a ceremony to honor all student veterans and employees on campus.

Military veterans and​ ​their​ ​family members make up nearly​ ​10 percent of CFCC’s student population in degree-seeking programs. CFCC opened the veterans center three years ago to better accommodate to needs of military personnel and their family members who are taking classes at the college.

Return of POW's from NVN 40th Anniversary

NVN POWs - 40 years later

Not many know that Diane Sawyer worked as an assistant to Ron Ziegler, Press Secretary to Richard Nixon. This video is pretty neat.

If this doesn't get to you, CHECK YOUR PULSE. YOU MAY BE DEAD. What is not mentioned about Nixon is that he approved operation Rolling Thunder which instigated the heavy bombing of Hanoi and eventually convinced the Vietnamese that it was time to end the war.

No matter what one may think of Nixon now - watch this!
