If you read LONE SURVIVOR by Marcus Lutrell, then you will want to read this book. My life changed after reading Lone Survivor and found myself wanting to learn more about these brave men, so that they would not be forgotten. It is so refreshing to find someone who really is a hero and an amazing example for children and adults, unfortunately society pays too much attention to athletes and movie stars. Lt. Murphy makes me want to be a better person and parent. It really opens your eyes to what these men go through to become warriors and protect our freedom. I have so much respect for the Navy Seals, and learning more about Lt. Murphy just increases that respect. It is always good to put a name and face to a person. This book makes it so much more real, and not just another soldier. I found it emotional and informative. It made me want to give this family a big hug and say thank you and God bless you! This is not just a book for military buffs. I am a mother of 3 girls and I find this book important for everyone to read, so they can pay their respect to a Medal of Honor recipient and learn what it means to be a hero.

What A Waste

Its a shame that such an incredible young man with such promise and future threw his life away for nothing. Just like in Vietnam all those dead kids thought they were defending America too. What did Michael Murphy die for? defending freedome in cities in America like Newark New Jersey or Gary Indiana. Such a waste.

    FREEDOM IS NOT FREE - READ THIS BOOK

    I ran into this book by accident and picked it up. It is an outstanding reflection of courage and what our "freedom" costs. Having been in Viet Nam for four years, I was aware of the outstanding record the Navy Seal's have and how important they are in missions that most could not complete. This is a great read, it is a reminder of the heroics of so many in difficult situations and it reinforces just how much our freedom depends on these men and women of courage and determination. This is a book for all ages!

    Amazing men

    I suggest reading "Lone Survivor" and then reading "Seal of Honor". The latter deals very little with the actual time on the mountain but rather gives details in the structure of the SEALS & the many men that gave their last full measure.
