Murph It Up Team Page

On May 21st, we will "MURPH IT UP".  There was 1 of 2 reactions from those of you who just read those words: Fear or confusion.  So, before those of you who don’t know what it is go and google it, I’ll just copy and paste what it is and the meaning behind it.

Who "Murph” is:

A team of 4 Navy SEALs led by LT. Michael P. Murphy on a mission to capture or kill a key Taliban leader, found themselves seriously outnumbered in a firefight with hundreds of enemy troops. Pinned down and under intense enemy fire, their communications operator severely wounded, they were in desperate need for help. Due to the mountainous terrain, their communications could not be received. Understanding the situation, LT. Michael P. Murphy moved to open ground, to use his satellite phone, exposing himself to enemy fire. LT Murphy was mortally wounded making that call. They continued fighting until Lt. Murphy and two of his three teammates were mortally wounded. His fourth team member, severely injured himself, managed to escape and was rescued 4 days later. He went on to tell the story in a book and movie titled “The Lone Survivor”.

For his selfless leadership, courageous actions and extraordinary devotion to duty, LT. Michael P. Murphy was posthumously rewarded the Medal of Honor, the first service member to receive the medal for service in Afghanistan, and the first Navy recipient of the medal since Vietnam.


What “Murph” is:

Every year on Memorial Day, Americans honor those who have fallen serving the United States Armed Forces.  Some do so by completing the “Murph”  workout on Memorial Day.
It is the following:

1 Mile Run
100 Pull Ups
200 Push Ups
300 Squats
1 Mile Run

ALL of this with a 20b weight vest on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now THAT IS BAD ASS!!

 

 Please help us give back to those who sacrifice for us on a daily basis!!
