This author talks alot about military protocal, speaches that individual made, military codes etc. I am past the point of this brave individuals death and but yet have only read a brief description as to how he died.
Nothing about the operation, how the fire fight went down and what exemplanary act was committed by LT. Michael Murphy to award him the medal of honor.
I am not down playing his death or the fact that he should not have received the medal,
I just want to read about it in the book .
The respect and admiration I have for these individuals is indescribable. They are truly the ultimate warriors.
I am very dissapointed with this particular author and how he wrote this book.
It does not do justice for the brave men and women that lost their lives and continue to loose their lives in this war.
I just wished the author had done a better job at researching the accounts and the cause of Lt. Murphy death.
The first 5 chapters will touch your heart,and if you dont get emotional,you might have to check yourself.The other chapters are about his training and what type of man he was and the way people thought about him.
Concludes with the medals he won and places that have honored him.It makes you remember that there are heroes in this world,that want nothing more than to protect there country,family, and are willing to die for what they believe in.
This man is 3 yrs younger than me,and lived 10 min. from me in Patchogue,long island.It was my loss to have never met him.
I will be meeting his mom in a couple months,and will let her know how her son touched my life,and i will never forget him. Also Danny and Matthew.
I have only really just started to read this particular Genre, and I find it both rewarding and inspiring. The Author did a great job.
A shame that LT. M.P.Murphy spared lives, only to lose his and his and fellow Seals.
I feel sorry that these guys get put into some real hairy situations, engage with what can only be described as , "Some really EVIL People", and yet the Public seem to think that they should have to follow normal ROE. Oh, but if they had to walk a mile in their shoes.
To all Navy Seals, and Special forces all over the World, Thanks for keeping the World safe for us, there are some really bad people out there and because you look out for us, we neither have to face them or put up with their Hate and Violence.
Thank you G. Williams for your great book, because having read Marcus Lutrell's book , it just helped to fill in a few of the Blanks.
I would definitely recommend this book .
The similarities between this shoot down, Blackhawk Down, and the loss of the the Seal Team 6 warriors after the killing of bin Laden are tragically similar. Dumb missile meets slow helo.
