Philip Duane Loeb
Philip Duane Loeb
Class of 1959
Army, 3 Years

Inducted into the Army 2 weeks after HS. My basic training was at Fort Jackson, SC. After a 2 week leave, my orders were to go to Fort Sam Houston, Texas for my 3 month training as an Army Medic 910.00 MOS. After my training I took a flight to the DMZ Korea to serve as a Combac Medic ant run a Dispensary for 1800 men with one doctor and 5 medics. At a minus 40 degree temp in the winter and very high mountains, it was a challenge at best. I spent 13 months there with a howitzer battalion 105-155 unit mostly in the field sleeping in a small tent and heater at full bore. When it was time to return to the US after 2 Christmas tours, I did get an R&R leave to Tokyo, Japan, which was a real experience for me. Not speaking their lingo made it tough if it weren't for a gig movie producer helping me get around town for one day. I was scheduled to get a nice plane ride to the States but as it rurned out,Uncle Sam had a little twisrt to going home. I was assigned to a Navy Ship, the USS Mitchell. Why, well the ship had 5,00 Navy, Marines and other services tat had to leave port but couldn't until they got 50 medics on the ship to do all the care of their men and do all the inspections that had to be done. Two weeks on the high seas was not my friend. After we got to our US port, I flew home for two weeks. After that I was ordered to go to my last assignment at Valley Forge General Hospital, where I worked as an E-5 Medic on a medical/surgical ward taking care of all service men and their war wounds, etc. I was there for 1 year and was the the best experience of my life in a job I always dreamed doing-helping all service solders. After my military service I became an EMT and used that to help others up to now. There is no deed greater than to help a person in need. I think it lifts the soul.
It was my pleasure to serve my Country.

Class of 1975
Marine Corps, 20+ Years

After graduation from William Tennent High School in 1975, Steve continued his education at the Citadel, a military college in Charleston, South Carolina, here he earned a bachelor's degree in 1979. Soon after graduation, he was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps and ultimately served in Beirut, Lebanon, for which he was awarded the Navy Unit Commendation medal. Upon his release from active duty with the Marines in 1983, he joined the Marine Corps Reserve, where he continued to serve as a First Lieutenant in armor and artillery units until 1985.

Three years later, he joined the Pennsylvania Army National Guard as a Chemical Operations Specialist. In 1998, he transferred to Troop A, 1st Squadron, 104th Cavalry and was elected to the Active Roll of First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry (FTPCC) in January of 2001. He was promoted to Corporal in September of that year and to Sergeant in June of 2002.

In August of 2002, he deployed to Bosnia with FTPCC and the 104th Cavalry, and served honorably with the City Troop in its first overseas deployment since the era of the Korean Conflict. As a NATO peacekeeper in a region torn asunder by civil war, he solidified friendships with his fellow Troopers and once again proved his professionalism and integrity as a soldier and a leader.

He was promoted to Master Sergeant in November of 2003. His rapid rise through the ranks is a testament to his dedication to service and his unwavering committment to the First City Troop.

Master Sergeant Stephen P. Allseits, Troop Number 2359, died on 4 August 2005 in Boise, Idaho, while completing Advanced Non-Commissioned Officer Training.

The First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry now honors this enduring legacy of service and achievement by dedicating the FTPCC Non-Commissioned Officer of the Year Award in the name of Master Sergeant Stephen Paul Allseits.
