Michael P. Murphy In a June 2005 campaign known as Operation Red Wing in Kunar Province Murphy repeatedly attempted to call for assistance for his wounded soldiers. Realizing the impossibility of communicating in the extreme terrain, and in the face of almost certain death, went into open terrain to gain a better position to transmit a call deprived of cover, exposing himself to direct enemy fire. Finally achieving contact with his headquarters, he maintained his exposed position while he provided his location and requested immediate support. In his final act of bravery, he continued to engage the enemy until he was mortally wounded
