Coming up this Saturday on Navy SEAL Blog Talk Radio, we will be discussing Mission 4 of our Team Life Series: LEADERSHIP. How can you become a better and more effective leader? How do you access the leader in yourself? How do you help others by being a leader in your daily life? Leadership is one of our greatest tools among Navy SEALS; here are some important points that Navy SEAL David Rutherford would like to share with you to help you embrace leadership in your life.

  1. Start every day Cold, Wet and Sandy
  2. SA = Situational Awareness
  3. Everyone will lead
  4. Take Risk = Lead with Love

Medal of Honor Winner, Mike Murphy represents a standard in Leadership. He was the first person to be awarded this great honor by the U.S. Military during the war in Afghanistan. He was also the first member of the U.S. Navy to receive the award since the Vietnam War. Michael received 11 different military decorations including the Silver Star, the Purple Heart, the Commendation Medal and the Combat Action Ribbon.

Born and raised in Suffolk County, New York, he graduated from Pennsylvania State University with honors and dual degrees in Political Science and Psychology. After college he accepted a commission in the United States Navy and became a United States Navy SEAL in July 2002. After participating in several War on Terror missions, he was killed June 28, 2005, after his team was compromised and surrounded by Taliban forces near Asadabad, Afghanistan.
