He was the first member of the U.S. Navy to receive the award since the Vietnam War [1]. His other posthumous awards include the Silver Star Medal (which was later upgraded to the Medal of Honor) and the Purple Heart. Michael Murphy was born and raised in Suffolk County, New York.

After college he accepted a commission in the United States Navy and became a United States Navy SEAL in July 2002.
