Michael Peter Murphy

West Point, 1970

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Scott Self on August 11, 2014:

Mike and I were not only West Point classmates, we were Pacific Grove High classmates and I think before that too. He was always a great guy. Even tempered, smart, and musical. We competed for the same appointment. He got it and I have to say he earned it. If I had to lose to someone, losing to Murf was easy to take. He told me to keep trying and I did. To have him as a classmate was an honor. I miss him. Rest in peace, Murf. You had a life that will be remembered by a lot of people.
