In 2005, Lieutenant Murphy was deployed to Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. On June 28 of that year, he and his team were on a reconnaissance mission in the mountains when they came under heavy fire from Taliban fighters. Despite being heavily outnumbered, Lieutenant Murphy risked his own life to call for backup and ensure the safety of his team.
Tragically, Lieutenant Murphy and two of his fellow SEALs were killed in action during the battle. In recognition of his bravery and selflessness, Lieutenant Murphy was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, the highest military decoration awarded by the United States government.
Lieutenant Murphy's legacy continues to inspire people around the world, and he is remembered for his unwavering dedication to his country, his fellow SEALs and his family. His courage, sacrifice and commitment to excellence embody the spirit of the United States Navy SEALs and his name will forever be synonymous with bravery and heroism.
