Coon’s life is an incredible journey – one that took him from a small Indian community near Mason, Oklahoma in the 1920s to the world stage as the United States declared war against Germany and Japan in December 1941. Phillip’s story is a tale of tragedy and triumph as he overcame insurmountable odds to survive the Bataan Death March and three-and-a-half years as a prisoner of war during World War II.
