As we head into Memorial Day Weekend, Marines and families take time to reflect and remember those that came before us and those that made the ultimate sacrifice. One of those is Navy Seal, Lt. Michael P. Murphy.
Lt. Murphy was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2005. He sacrificed his life to request support for his team while suffering multiple gunshot wounds. He was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions.
One of Lt. Murphy’s favorite workouts was what we now know as the Murph Challenge. It consists of a one-mile run, 100 pull-ups, 200 push-ups, 300 squats, and another one-mile run, all while running with a plate carrier.
