The trainees will have a lot to live up to. The Navy photo above depicts SEAL SDV Team 1, which became the focus of action during Operation Redwing on June 28/05. Lt. Murphy would later earn a posthumous Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions. A combination of freak circumstances, great personal determination, and the steadfast honor of local Afghan villagers made hospital corpsman Luttrell (highlighted) the only surviving team member.
