Today’s Medal of Honor Monday recognizes Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, who was a Navy SEAL. On June 28 2005, Lieutenant Murphy exposed himself to gunfire while attempting to call headquarters to request immediate support for his team. After being shot several times, he still picked the satellite phone back up and finished the call.
“In his final act of bravery, he continued to engage the enemy until he was mortally wounded, gallantly giving his life for his country and for the cause of freedom.”
