The Medal of Honor
This Monday, October 22, 2007, President Bush on behalf of the Nation publicly honored fallen Navy SEAL Mike Murphy by presenting his grieving parents with the Medal of Honor - and privately honored their sacrifice by wearing a dog tag they'd given him moments before."He took his deployment personally. He was going after, and his team was going after, the men who planned, plotted against and attacked not only the United States, but the city he loved, New York," said his father. "He knew what he was fighting for." It is because of the character of men like Lt. Mike Murphy that our children live in safety and businesses prosper in a stable environment. And it is darn well time that we all (businesses included) start standing up like real men and real women for our neighbors like Mike Murphy who stand up for all of us.
