SOFREP supports One Team, One Fight, but I wanted to honor a SEAL brother today and this post was inspired by Jeff Bearuline’s post in the private FB room 5326 (SEAL code).

So I am sipping a Guinness myself as I reflect on personal friends and teammates lost that were close to me:  John Zinn, Heath Robinson, Mike Bearden, Matt “Axe” Axelson, John “JT” Tumilson, Chris Campbell, Jason Freiwald and lastly Mike Murphy among many others.

See you on the other side gents, and for God’s sake– save some damn Guinness for me!

…”As promised… I just walked into a local pub (PUB 25, Newtown, CT) and asked to speak with the Owner/Manager. I asked if I could leave a cold one on the bar for Michael all day . I showed him the “Reserved” sign I made and explained I wanted to leave him sufficient funds to buy a random person a Guinness every hour today, and that is when the surprised patron asks him “Who is this from?” he should reply: “It’s from LT Michael P. Murphy.” and point to the reserved sign.”
