America’s Best

President Bush awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously to Lt. Michael P. Murphy, a Navy SEAL who was killed in Afghanistan in 2005. Murphy’s exploits were documented in the best selling book Lone Survivor, written by the only member of Murphy’s four-man team to survive the battle in which he was killed.

The fact that America still produces such young men of integrity, courage, and self-sacrifice gives me great hope for the future.
