Lt. Michael Murphy won the Medal of Honor in 2005 by exposing himself to intense enemy fire to try and call in support for his SEAL team who were under attack by an overwhelming force of Taliban fighters in the Konar Province of Afghanistan.

Today, on what would have been his 35th birthday, the U.S. Navy is further honoring the fallen hero by christening a destroyer, the USS Michael Murphy, in his name.

Fair Winds and Following Seas to the USS Michael Murphy DDG112, and all those who sail aboard her.

“They that go down to the sea in ships; That do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and His wonders in the deep.”

By LC 0311 Sir Crunchie I.M.H., K.o.E.

Former USMC infantryman, proud father of a current USMC infantryman and two Princesses who know what that means. Currently an NRA law enforcement firearms instructor, radar instructor, CPR instructor, a few others but you get the point. Catholic, conservative, heterosexual, gun owner, anything I can do to piss off liberals.
