    Nicholas James Murphy, 19, USN(AD) /Peoria, IL, 25, 26, 28 NOV 16

    The family of Nicholas Murphy has requested the Patriot Guard to attend the services of their family member.

    Nicholas was stationed in Pensacola, FL with the U.S. Navy. He was undergoing training to become a SEAL. That was his lifelong dream.

    He was tragically killed on November 19 in Pensacola. A vehicle struck Nick and two of his Navy friends. At the last second, Nick pushed one of the friends out of the way. Both friends survived with injuries. Nick has saved another 8 to 10 people through organ donation. Even in his death he was a hero saving lives.

    The word "hero" is used much too often. But now it is appropriately given to Nicholas. Not just for his willingness to serve as a SEAL. But for his courageous action, putting his life in jeopardy for the safety of others. That is a Hero! I pray PGR's presence will give some measure of comfort to his family, knowing that we care.

Find peace, strength and comfort in the knowledge that your fallen hero gave unselfishly of themselves in order to keep us all free and safe. Your brave warrior will never be forgotten. Thank you for sharing your loved one with all of us, their sense of duty and honor will live on for generations to come. God Bless you our Hero for a job well done.Stand down and rest in peace.




    As I sit in Heaven, and watch you every day,
    I try to let you know with signs, I never went away.
    I hear you when you're laughing, and watch you while you sleep,
    I even place my arms around you, to calm you as you weep.
    I see you wish the days away, begging to have me home,
    So I try to send you signs, so you know you are not alone.
    Don't feel guilty that you have life, that was denied to me,
    Heaven is truly beautiful, just you wait and see.
    So live your life, laugh again, enjoy yourself, be free,
    Then I know with every breath you take, you'll be taking one for me.

    Sadly, another American veteran has departed this life far too soon, and will be greatly missed by family and friends. I offer to them my heartfelt condolences, and trust God will grant them the comfort they seek in the days ahead. I want to thank Nicholas James Murphy for taking a stand for freedom…thank you for reminding us there is a higher calling; America is a great nation because of patriots like you.
