Do you remember the Seal team members that went down in the helicopter crash last August? One of them, Nick Spehar, was from the small town I work in. I had the honor of leading the procession escorting his body from the county line to the funeral home. The roads were lined with people. They had signs, flags, etc. Honestly, I get goose bumps writing about it now. It was incredible.
I recall seeing the photos of the dog next to a fallen hero's casket, but I don't think that was Lt. Murphy.
I am just now starting to read, "In The Company of Hero's" by Michael J. Durant CWO4. It is the true account of the incident that they made the movie "BlackHawk Down" about. I'm reading this against the advice of my brother. We are both very patriotic and he says this book will just "piss me off". The movie did so I assume the book will too. I'll read it anyway. It involves the lives of true American Hero's and their story should be known.
