"Those who have had the privilege of working with the Navy SEALs invariably ask the question, 'where do we get such incredible Americans?' SEAL of Honor helps to answer that question in a most poignant way by focusing on LT. Michael Murphy, his family on Long Island, NY, and the Navy SEALs; documenting the way each impacted the others. From this, we get insight not only into how Michael developed his strong sense of moral clarity, duty and honor, but also into the legacy he, his teammates and the entire Special Operations community left for our Nation."
Brigadier General Anthony J. Tata (USA, Ret)
"SEAL of Honor is a compelling read chock full of lessons learned for military and civilian alike. It is a tearjerker from the very beginning and Gary Williams does an excellent job of capturing the duality of our everyday peaceful lives here in the United States and the exceptional heroism and harrowing tragedies that occur overseas...SEAL of Honor is more than an account of a military action… it is an examination of one man's life, his maturation, his service, his combat experience, and the actions that led to Michael Murphy being awarded the Medal of Honor. SEAL of Honor should be on every leader's short list of must read books."
