  1. congrats .
    i hope he will be doing the same kinds of work in future too .

  2. Umm…I’m not so sure what you mean. Lt. Murphy died in Afghanistan in 2005 and it was because of his efforts before he died that he is receiving this award. Read the story included in the post.

  3. This man was a true hero. placing needs of his team mates over his own welfare. I am proud and saddened to read this story. It is a shame our finest are wasted in vain. We need to bring this war to an end and take care of our own. No more democracy for cavemen
