Captain Phillips (Played by Tom Hanks in the Namesake Movie) Coming to Kennewick
Capt. Richard Phillips had quite the story to tell and with the help of Tom Hanks he was able to do just that.
Captain Phillips was held hostage by Somali Pirates in 2009 and sacrificed himself to save his crew.
It was made into a movie starring Tom Hanks, and now he will be able to share his story here in Tri Cities.
He will be a guest speaker to kick off Safety Connect, a Hanford health and science fair.
