Great and powerful message

When I first came across the story of Lt. Michael Murphy, it was in the book Seal of Honor. At the time I was having a lot of personal and family issues, but the more and more I learned about Michael Murphy, the ore I started to see some similarities with myself. The book helped me to make myself a better person. Then, I heard about Murph: The Protector, and knew that I had to see this documentary. I wanted to hear the words of the people that were closest to him describe a man that few people could ever measure up to. This story is one of a true hero. Not only a good person, but a patriot. Someone that our children should look up to, and an archetype that all men and women alike should strive to not just emulate, but to evolve in to. Thanks to what I learned about Michael Murphy, the SEAL motto of "The only easy day was yesterday," is one that I will keep in mind forever. This is worth the watch, and it may even help to change the way you are living your life.

Thumbs up for Murph

A wonderful documentary about a true American Hero. If you are looking for action, blood and guts look elsewhere, this is a story about a man who gave his life for his teammates and for his country. Peppered with candid photos and shots of his hometown, the story is both sad and inspiring. Murph was killed in action in Afghanistan in 2005 where he gave in a fierce fire fight with an overwhelming Taliban force. Murph stepped out from cover into enemy fire in order to call for backup, and was mortally wounded. Murph's call enabled the eventual rescue of Marcus Luttrell and the recovery of the three team members who died in the fight. He was posthumously awarded the Silver Star, Purple Heart, and Medal of Honor. The movie gives background on Murph's life, with moving anecdotes from family and friends. This is not a fancy Hollywood flick, but a must see nonetheless... evidence that heroism and selflessness are alive in our world today. For more detail, pick up the book 'Seal of Honor'.

Exceptional production; moving tribute

Mike Murphy is an actual American hero and the more people who see this, the better off our country will be. How many people do we know who will actually put duty and fidelity to others in their charge before their own self-interest (and in Murph's case, before his own self preservation)? Murph did exactly this when he walked out into the open, took additional fire and called for help for his men --- and, as the bullets hit him, he concluded the call back to base with a "thank you." That is what we should be saying to Murphy and so many like him who will sacrifice so many of the comforts the rest of enjoy in order to protect our freedom. This film is a fitting tribute and exceptionally well produced. I'm heartened to learn American still produces men like Murph and through this film, we can feel like we've got to know him. May God continue to provide comfort to his family, friends, and comrades in arms such as Marcus Luttrell.
