Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy received the Medal of Honor for his actions during Operation Red Wings. A memorial park in Ronkonkoma, L.I., and a post office in Patchogue(his home town) now bear his name, and the naval destroyer Michael Murphy patrols the Pacific. His valorous death has inspired myself, and many others, beyond description. Thank you for being my hero.

"Embrace your dreams. If you want to be a hero, you need to have dreams." -FF7CC

No ones death should inspire you. The way the man or women lived should. There is nothing cool about dying. How Mike Murphy died was terrible being fucking ransacked by the taliban. His actions while alive are what made him a lion, his decision to climb onto the rock to make a phone call to get him Danny Dietz, Matt Axelson and lutrell help were what made him a hero. You do no service to anyone glorifying the way a man dies. You do service to someone by being a man they’d be proud to know and trying to adhere to their work ethic/ morale code.
