Not surprisingly most of the media outlets have not picked up on the story of Lt Murphy receiving the Medal of Honor. I guess receiving the countries highest award for valor in action against an enemy force is not as important as Al Gore, Brittney's kids, Lindsey's addiction, or other crap! This guy is from Long Island and even the NY Times hasn't picked it up because the war isn't PC anymore!
President Bush will present the medal to Lt Murphy's parents on Oct 22nd @ 1430.
Also to my fireservice brothers this man carried a patch from 53 Engine & 43 Truck in his pocket while deployed as a symbol of why he was there and what he was doing.
