Fellow Marine and friend, Mark Robinson, was able to arrange a private tour of this awesome ship. Our tour was done by Chief Friend who gave nothing less than a stellar tour who's knowledgeable about the ship from the engine room to the combat information center. Truly impressive vessel and rightfully named for MOH LT Michael Murphy.
Also needs mentioning, and some of his items are displayed, is Corpsman First Class Marcus Luttrell, who was the Lone Survivor (name of his book) on that dreadful ambush. His story details the heroic efforts of LT Murphy and his fellow teammates. I had the privilege of meeting Marcus earlier this year at the Glenn Beck studios in Dallas, TX.
