Captain Phillips Will Head Back To Sea Next Year

Captain Richard Phillips of Underhill says he hasn’t been to sea since his dramatic rescue from Somali pirates in April, but he plans to return to his ship next year.  In the meantime he’s been busy with opportunities that arose as a result of his celebrity status.

Delegation spearheads resolution honoring Phillips

Vermont’s congressional delegation has spearheaded efforts in Washington to honor the Underhill man who was held by Somali pirates earlier this month. Congressman Peter Welch introduced a resolution in the House this morning to honor Richard Phillips. He’s the merchant ship captain who gave himself up to the pirates to protect his crew.
