Seal of Honor
During his last year in college, Murphy postponed going to law school to enlist in the Navy. Called to serve, Murphy passed up the opportunity to attend one of the several prominent law schools that accepted him. Williams dissects the training of Murphy and records how he was positively perceived by his instructors and senior officers. He takes the reader into every difficult aspect of the SEAL training. During the third phase of training, Murphy watched as the events of September 11, , unfolded. Right away, the SEALs were detected by local goat herders who frequently moved about in this region.
Shortly after leaving the goat herders behind, Murphy and his men were in a new position and they were attacked by the enemy with excessive force. All four men fought off eighty to one-hundred enemy fighters that were closing in on their positions. With the enemy approaching their own lines and all of the SEAL members wounded from the fighting, Murphy knew they needed to be reinforced if they were going to survive. As a result, between 30 and 40 enemy fighters besieged his four member team.
Demonstrating exceptional resolve, Lieutenant Murphy valiantly led his men in engaging the large enemy force. The ensuing fierce firefight resulted in numerous enemy casualties, as well as the wounding of all four members of the team. Ignoring his own wounds and demonstrating exceptional composure, Lieutenant Murphy continued to lead and encourage his men. When the primary communicator fell mortally wounded, Lieutenant Murphy repeatedly attempted to call for assistance for his beleaguered teammates. Realizing the impossibility of communicating in the extreme terrain, and in the face of almost certain death, he fought his way into open terrain to gain a better position to transmit a call.
This deliberate, heroic act deprived him of cover, exposing him to direct enemy fire.
Finally achieving contact with his headquarters, Lieutenant Murphy maintained his exposed position while he provided his location and requested immediate support for his team. 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. By his selfless leadership, Lieutenant Murphy reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.
