Norwegian Army soldiers with the Telemark Battalion conducting a close quarters urban warfare exercise in the made up town of “Sierra” in the Netherlands. May 2, 2014.
We really respect that these soldiers from multiple generations in the US military are standing for Israel against Hamas - even one World War II veteran.
Thank you for speaking up about this shared struggle for freedom!
“My name is Jeremiah Head and I am a 4th grade teacher at Inland Leaders Charter School in Yucaipa, CA. Inland Leaders is a charter school dedicated to teaching leadership qualities to our students so they can go out and change their communities. This year each teacher was asked to choose a leader their class would learn about and have their picture placed above the entrance to each classroom. Most chose very typical leaders such as former presidents and famous leaders of our countries past. I asked to have my class learn about a leader that was relevant to the world we now live in and was given permission to have Lt. Michael Murphy as our leader. His picture now sits above the entrance to the class as a daily example if what leadership looks like. It is great to have parents and teachers continually ask me who is above the classroom door and get the chance to quickly tell his story of bravery, sacrifice, and leadership. He is a great example to our youth of what leadership looks like in the 21st century.
