Paul Galanti
Paul Galanti was raised in an Army family in many states, Japan, France, Germany and Turkey. He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1962 and entered Navy Jet Flight Training. He departed for Vietnam with Light Jet Attack Squadron 216 aboard the U.S.S. Hancock in November 1965. Shot down and captured while flying his 97th combat mission in June 1966, he remained a prisoner of war in North Vietnam's infamous Hanoi Hilton for nearly seven years. Released from Hanoi in February 1973, he served in Navy recruiting in Richmond, Virginia, earned the Master of Commerce degree from the University of Richmond and served in the office of the Commandant as a Battalion Officer at the United States Naval Academy. His personal military decorations include the Silver Star, two Legions of Merit with Combat "V", the Bronze Star with Combat "V", 9 Air Medals and 2 Purple Hearts. After retiring from the Navy, he was the CEO of the Virginia Pharmaceutical Association, the Medical Society of Virginia and the Science Museum of Virginia Foundation. The Board of the Virginia War Memorial Foundation named its new $8 million education center after him and his wife, Phyllis Eason Galanti, a W&M graduate who became a national celebrity during his captivity. In 2010, Governor McDonnell appointed him Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Veterans Services and to the Board of Visitors of the Virginia Military Institute. He also serves on the Advisory Committee on former POWs to the Secretary of Veterans Affairs.
