    CELEBRATING LIFE YESTERDAY TODAY AND TOMORROW! The observance of Emancipation Park Day began as early as 1927 in Joplin as a celebration by African Americans from a period of enslavement. Today this celebration is about the journey and achievement of African Americans and continuous self-development and respect for all cultures. This story of pride, resilience and determination is of great historical and spiritual importance for all Americans - as it serves us well to understand that united we can overcome all obstacles. We encourage those from all walks in life to come out and celebrate. The celebration begins Friday at 6PM with an opening prayer, a reading of historical importance, gospel music, movie in the park, as well as an Old School Jam. Saturday is full of activities for families including a walk for diabetes, car show, basketball tournament, bounce house, dunk tank and a concert in the park featuring the Full Flava Kings.

The aftermath resulted in the war's worst loss of American lives due to enemy fire. He leaves behind his wife Laura, and sons Ethan, and Nolan. Phil's hometown was Joplin Missouri . Phil was an avid cyclist. He loved cycling. His favorite was mountain biking. He spent a lot of time on the road bike as well. “The Philip J. Svitak Freedom Ride” was initiated in an effort to honor Phil, his family, all fallen soldiers, and to share his love for cycling.

Phil was a nightstalker, a very elite group of fighters
