On June 28th, 2005, Lt  Michael Murphy of Patchogue LI, gave his life to protect his Navy Seal brothers.While conducting surveillance on a mountain ridge in Afghanistan, he and three fellow SEALs were surrounded by a much larger enemy force. Their only escape was down the side of a mountain -- and the SEALs launched a valiant counterattack while cascading from cliff to cliff. But as the enemy closed in, Michael recognized that the survival of his men depended on calling back to the base for reinforcements. With complete disregard for his own life, he moved into a clearing where his phone would get reception. He made the call, and Michael then fell under heavy fire. Yet his grace and upbringing never deserted him. Though severely wounded, he said "thank you" before hanging up, and returned to the fight -- before losing his life.

Unfortunately, the helicopter carrying the reinforcements never reached the scene. It crashed after being struck by a rocket-propelled grenade. And in the end, more Americans died in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005 than on any other day since the beginning of Operation Enduring Freedom. This day of tragedy also has the sad distinction of being the deadliest for Navy Special Warfare forces since World War II.

One of Michael's fellow SEALs did make it off the mountain ridge -- he was one of Michael's closest friends. Petty Officer Marcus Luttrell of Texas, author of a riveting book (and now movie) called "Lone Survivor," put it this way: "Mikey was the best officer I ever knew, an iron-souled warrior of colossal and almost unbelievable courage in the face of the enemy."

For his courage, Lieutenant Michael Murphy of Patchouge Long Island was awarded the first Medal of Honor for combat in Afghanistan. And with that medal, he was acknowledged a debt that will not diminish with time -- and can never be repaid. This year, the Long Island Catholic Men's Ministry is awarding Lt. Murphy the "Msgr. Kissane" award, given only to those who exemplify the ideals of a being catholic man!

 The Murhpy family will be accepting the award and we would like for the men of Long Island to come out in a show of support. love and gratitude for their son's sacrifice.
