WHY MURPH? MURPH “THE PROTECTOR”

Michael P. Murphy

United States Navy (SEAL)
May 7, 1976 – June 28, 2005

While in action… “Murphy fought on, allowing one member of his team (Marcus Luttrell) to escape, before he was killed. For his selfless actions, LT. Michael Murphy was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor on October 27, 2007. We honor his sacrifice and memory though The Murph Challenge. Find out more about Michael Murphy at the Memorial Foundation created in his name.

About the Travis Manion Foundation

“If Not Me, Then Who…”

On April 29, 2007 1st Lt. Travis Manion, USMC, was killed by a sniper while saving his wounded teammates in Iraq. Shortly after his death, the fallen Marine’s mother, the late Janet Manion, created the Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) to carry on the legacy of character, service and leadership embodied by all of our nation’s fallen heroes. Founded in Doylestown, PA, TMF has generated a national movement that is inspired by the words Travis spoke before leaving for his second and final deployment – “If Not Me, Then Who…” 

Shortly after the death of 1st Lt. Travis Manion in Iraq on April 29, 2007 the fallen Marine’s mother, the late Janet Manion, founded the Travis Manion Foundation to assist our nation’s veterans and families of the fallen. TMF engages with veterans and families of the fallen in all
stages of their personal journeys and offers them unique opportunities to empower them to achieve their goals. TMF believes that the best way to honor the fallen is by challenging the living. TMF challenges veterans and survivors to lead the “If Not Me, Then Who…” movement and inspire others to continue the service to community and country exemplified by the nation’s fallen heroes.
