Michelle Malkin is linked up to the news that Lt. Michael P. Murphy was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor (MOH).
Lt. Murphy was killed in a firefight with Taliban fighters in 2005.
Black5 has Lt. Murphy's complete background. Lone Survivor is the book written about Lt. Murphy and his comrades who were fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan. Interestingly, the author says that while their team waited to ambush a local Taliban leader, a local goat herder discovered their position. The team decided to spare the herder's life and, subsequently, the SEAL team soon found themselves surrounded by 80 heavily-armed Taliban members. Just proves the adage that no good deed goes unpunished.
Rue St. Michel enthusiastically recommends this book.
God bless you, Lieutenant. May God commend your spirit to the highest echelons of Heaven.
