New Blog

I've had several people ask me if I'm going to keep up my blog. At first I said "no", figuring that once I returned home from Afghanistan no one would be interested in what we were doing. But, as I've looked back over my own blog I've realized just what a valuable tool it was in helping me track my many "adventures." It also helped me realize just how much I'd forgotten.

So I decided to not continue this particular blog but have started one that my family and I can post to. Once again, it will be a blog for my family but you, the world, will be invited to read about what we're doing.

So if you want to read about my life as a civilian as well as the thoughts and happenings of our family, check us out at:

Hello Sir,
I am interested in providing encouragement to our veterans and the soldiers who have been wounded while protecting our great country. Additionally, I am interested in providing practical information and insight to assist their families. My name is Craig J. Phillips. I am a traumatic brain injury survivor and a master’s level rehabilitation counselor. I sustained an open skull fracture with right frontal lobe damage and remained in a coma for 3 weeks at the age of 10 in August of 1967. I underwent brain and skull surgery after waking from the coma. Follow-up cognitive and psyche-social testing revealed that I would not be able to succeed beyond high school. In 1967 Neurological Rehabilitation was not available to me, so I had to teach myself how to walk, talk, read, write and speak in complete sentences. I completed high school on time and went on to obtain both my undergraduate and graduate degrees. For an in depth view of my process please read my post, http://secondchancetolive.wordpress.com/2007/02/18/my-journey-thus-far/

Through out my lifetime I developed strategies to overcome many obstacles and in so doing I have achieved far beyond all reasonable expectations. On February 6, 2007 at the encouragement of a friend I created Second Chance to Live. Second Chance to Live, which is located at http://secondchancetolive.wordpress.com presents topics in such a way to encourage, motivate and empower the reader to live life on life’s terms. I believe our circumstances are not meant to keep us down, but to build us up. As a traumatic brain injury survivor, I speak from my experience, strength and hope. As a professional, I provide information to encourage, motivate and empower both disabled and non-disabled individuals to not give up on their process. Please read my post, http://secondchancetolive.wordpress.com/2007/04/18/the-power-of-identification/ My interest is to provide encouragement, hope, motivation and empowerment to veterans and their families

Please encourage your readers to visit Second Chance to Live at http://secondchancetolive.wordpress.com and consider adding Second Chance to Live to your web site as a useful resource and placing a notice in your newsletter.


Thank you for your time and kindness.

Have a simply phenomenal day!

I thought I'd click on Steve's blog for a little light reading, and then clicked on yours. I saw the new address and was thinking to myself "The Church News?" He is that cool to be in the Church News? Not that your not cool!! I'm thinking of the Deseret Church news paper. About an hour later (I'll admit it was a long time) it hits me. THEIR LAST NAME IS CHURCH AND IT IS THEIR NEWS!!! So..... I didn't want to feel dumb alone so casually told Steve your new address. He has a puzzled, perplexed look on his face. Then laughed and got it. It only took him about 60 seconds of pondering. Maybe less, I'm going to say 5 minutes just so I feel better. Anyway, thought I'd share. The Guard goofed everything up and put people all over, so who knows who we will see now. Nice to see that life goes on and that there are smiles.

Hi, I'm Bailey and I'm 16. I've been reading your blog about being a JAG in Afghanistan and I think it's really interesting. Thank you for serving our country.

My favorite television show is JAG and I think I might even be a Navy JAG lawyer when I grow up. I'm not sure yet.

I wonder if you'll be notified of this post. If not, I could be out of luck. Anyhow, you've gotten lots of comments about possible JAG careers. I think I could possibly interested in going this route and would also appreciate receiving some more information. I just finished up my first year of school. I am taking off for Tajikistan in a couple weeks to do human rights work for the summer and hopefully learn some Farsi. If you get this, let me know how I can reach you directly and we'll go from there.- Rob (cooperr@law.upenn.edu)
