Selfless Valor: Navy LT Michael P. Murphy
By John B. Dwyer

In a White House ceremony today at 2:30 PM, President Bush will award a posthumous Medal of Honor to the family of Navy LT Michael P. Murphy. For Operation Red Wing he led a 3-man SEAL recon team that was taken under fire by several dozen Taliban in June 2005. When his commo man was wounded, Murphy had to expose himself to enemy fire to radio for a rescue chopper (shot down upon arrival; all aboard killed).

Though shot in the back while doing so, he completed that call and, multiply wounded, returned to the team, now engaged in a desperate battle. Some 2 hours later, only one, Luttrell, remained alive.

There is a complete account of his selfless heroism at this link.
On Tuesday October 23 at 11:00a.m., LT Murphy will be inducted into the Pentagon's Hall of Heroes, where all Medal of Honor recipients are honored.

G-d BLESS and keep this young hero's soul. We truly don't understand how lucky we are to have people like this SEAL. People like him are SO rare in the general population, yet they are legion in the ranks of the Army Rangers, Marine recon, and Navy special ops!

If you are currently stationed overseas and putting your life on the line for your fellow Americans, KNOW THIS:
We respect and admire you more than you'll ever know, and say our prayers for your safe return every night. May G-d watch over your brave soul.

That's a beautiful thing you wrote, Morgan. That's exactly why I post the things I do--I always hope that there is some soldier who sees it--and all the nice things all you great folks post--and they know, in their heart of hearts, how much they mean to us and that we are behind them 100%!

Bless all those that don our Nation's great uniforms.

Peace be to those that die wearing those uniforms.

Shame on those that would besmirch them in any way.

Love to all the rest.

bobcat-obama can't, because obama made choices that make it impossible for him to act with integrity and honor!
And because of the choices this young man made, he can't help but act with honor and integrity and courage!

BTW-Saw the slap down you gave bora/dora over at FJ's!

Navy Lt. Murphy, We honor you and your bravery. We can all be proud of this American hero.

Donal, your tribute is beautiful. We should never forget our heros, and with remembrances like this, we never will.
