Extraordinary Legacies

The Phantom Regiment Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have made a significant and long-lasting positive impact on the Phantom Regiment organization.

The Hall of Fame began in 2016, with 36 inductees enshrined that inaugural year. Prior, Phantom Regiment recognized those who have made a significant impact on the organization by adding their names to the “Heritage Plaque”. To better honor them with a more traditional recognition, Phantom Regiment created the Phantom Regiment Hall of Fame during its 60th anniversary year.
