Secretary of the Navy Donald C. Winter announced today at a ceremony in Lake Ronkonkoma, N.Y., the name of the newest Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer will be Michael Murphy. Designated as DDG-112, the name honors Lt. Michael Murphy who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions during Operation Red Wing in Afghanistan on June 28, 2005.

Assuming we do not get anymore Arleigh Burke's, this will be the last one built. I can't think of a more deserving person for this kind of honor.

All I can say is "HOOYAH Mike Murphy"
