I keep seeing this image posted in multiple places. I don't know about it's authenticity, but I prefer to think it's correct rather than investigate it.
For those that can't read it, the sign in the photo reads:
~ RESERVED FOR ~
LT MICHAEL P. MURPHY
U.S. NAVY (SEAL) KILLED IN ACTION - 28 JUN 2005 - AFGHANISTAN
The caption reads:
As promised... I just walked into a local pub (PUB 25, Newtown, CT) and asked to speak with the Owner/Manager. I asked if I could leave a cold one on the bar for Michael all day. I showed him the "Reserved" sign I made and explained I wanted to leave him sufficient funds to buy a random person a Guinness every hour today, and that when the surprised patron asks himWho is this fron?he should reply:It's from LT Michael P. Murphy.and point at the resevered sign. The Owner/Manager was so in tune with this small gesture, he refused my money, introduced me to two men working in the PUB who just returned home from Afghanistan and Iraq with the ASSURANCE that my request on Michael's behalf would be honored. God Bless America!
