I was unable to attend the dedication of the memorial to Lt. Michael P. Murphy, the US Navy SEAL who was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Early Labor Day morning my wife and I finally had the opportunity to visit.

The memorial is in Patchogue in the Memorial Park outside the American Legion post. The morning was exceedingly quiet due to the holiday and lent an aura of serenity, dignity and respect that befitted Lt. Murphy’s and all the other memorials there. It was a beautiful morning to say a prayer for all those who have fought for our freedoms and made the ultimate sacrifice in our names.
