MEMORIAL DAY MONDAY: No 0530 or 0930 class. Instead we will be meeting at the track at 0900 to honor Michael Patrick Murphy and all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
Michael Patrick “Murph” Murphy (May 7, 1976 – June 28, 2005) was a United States Navy SEAL officer who was awarded the U.S. military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, for his actions during the War in Afghanistan. He was the first member of the U.S. Navy to receive the award since the Vietnam War. His other posthumous awards include the Silver Star Medal (which was later upgraded to the Medal of Honor) and the Purple Heart.
In honor of Lt. Michael Murphy, killed June 28, 2005, in Afghanistan:
Partition the pull-ups, push-ups, and squats as needed. Start and finish with a mile run. If you’ve got a twenty pound vest or body armor, wear it.
