VOL. 1/ISSUE 39 FRIDAY, AUGUST 2, 2013 35 cents SEALs, immortalizedOn June 28, 2005, Lt. Michael Murphy made a call for help. For that call he was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. It was a moment that inspired fel low Navy SEAL and South Caroli na amateur artist Josh Hermann. He captured the story in a paint ing thats now at the National Navy UDT-SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce. Long story short, there were four (SEALs) on a recon operation and they found themselves in a force, Hermann said. In the get communications to get assis tance, Murphy moved out from cover and got shot several times while calmly asking for support. According to a Navy Special Warfare narrative, Murphy and three others SEALs were seeking a Taliban leader in the mountains near Asadabad, Afghanistan, as part of Operation Red Wings.

2 AUGUST 2, 2013 VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE Library of Congress seeks veterans tales Project of the Library of Congress American Folklife Center, said all veterans have stories to tell, and need to do just that. Irving Kampf can tell a good story about his Army days. They started in St. Petersburg at hotel was serving as Army barracks. I remember writing to my folks that (the Army) was going to be a wonderful deal, he said. How little did I know. I never was quar tered in a hotel after that. Kampf recently visited that hotel with his of a walk-through museum about its his tory including history about its role as a training center during World War II. Dorothy Kamm, his daughter, said Kampfs stories that started in her childhood make her feel psychically connected to the time the hotel was part of an Army training center. I was listening to all his stories and still do, Kamm said. Both live in Port St. Lucie. Kampf was one of the millions of young men and women who served in uniform during World War II. He was in the Army Air Corps and trained to be a radio operator. He doesnt have tales about great calls, narrow escapes and near misses. training for the Air Force, the civilian (instructor) decided to keep me there, he said. I was one of only three who did not ship out. Kampf bounced around North America doing a va riety of different jobs for the Army, and ended up going north. Way north. He didnt mind. Kampf was acquainted with another great storyteller, American novelist Jack London. he said. I had the good fortune to be sent to Alaska. Kamm said Dads stories about Alaska and imagination.

Murphy was shot multiple times when he ex posed himself in order to call for assistance. By the time the battle was over, 11 Navy SEALs died alongside eight Army soldiers. Hermann learned more about the story a couple years ago while visiting the museum. Around that time he was starting to revive an old and long-dormant interest in art. He said the museum had a portrait of Murphy with a plaque giving his Medal of Honor nar rative. Frankly, he thought the narrative was a bit dry and dull. It needed some emotion. I thought it would be nice to have something that would better tell the story of what these guys did, Hermann said. At the Navys website, navy. mil, Hermann found a picture SEALs. Turned out, the picture was taken shortly before four of them died alongside Murphy in viving SEAL from the Red Wings operation, Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Marcus Luttrell, is also in the picture. He wrote a book about the battle Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10. Hermann decided the picture captured an element of the battle nothing else could the humanity of those who died. In addition to helping tell Mur phys story, the painting raises funds for the museum. We sell copies of it, Hermann said. There will only be 20 copies of this picture ever made. Hermann said 20 because 19 service members died in the bat tle, and one survived. All told, that painting I creat ed from nothing has generated $11,000 of donations to the museum, Hermann said. Rick Kaiser, executive direc tor, said the museum has sold a couple copies of the painting and they fetched thousands. The painting itself looks exactly like a photograph, Kaiser said. I think thats what originally catch es peoples eyes. He said the museum displays beside a copy of the photograph it portrays. People start looking back and forth to see what the difference is, Kaiser said. Then they look at the story of it and it really hits them. Hermann said hes planning a series of paintings based on the handful of SEALs whove been awarded the Medal of Honor. The next will be Master at Arms 2nd Class Michael Monsoor. He died in September, 2006, in Ramadi, Iraq. Monsoor threw himself on an insurgents grenade to protect other SEALs. His funeral captured Americas attention. At his funeral, all the SEALs pulled their tridents off and Hermann said. Herman was a SEAL from 1985 to 1989. He was in SEAL Team Four. Before then, he considered studying art at college. After he discharged from the service, Her mann became an engineer, and mostly forgot about painting. He resurrected his childhood interest in art to give his wife a special Christmas present. That reminded him how much he missed art. For me, time doesnt exist when Im painting, Hermann said. Hed like to take it further. Some day I wouldnt mind being able to make a living doing this, Hermann said. I wouldnt mind making a living on commissions. Oh, and are there any inconsistency to be found in a SEAL painting pretty pictures? To me its almost like an ath letic endeavor, Hermann said. Think of the hand-eye mental coordination you have to do to paint something like this. Its a mental challenge to paint something like this to me. Kaiser himself a SEAL said SEALs he knows have a wide range of interests that some Hermann hopes to have the Monsoor painting done by November to present at the muse ums next muster, an annual gathering of SEALs. Thatll be on Nov. 8, 9 and 10. Operation Red Wings is some times called Operation Redwing. Operation Redwing is also the name of a 1950s series of nucle ar tests. The Medal of Honor is awarded by Congress for risk of life in combat beyond the call of duty. Its often mistakenly called the Congressional Medal of Hon or. At (Medal of Honor recipient Lt. Michael Murphys) funeral, all the SEALs pulled their tridents off and pounded them PAINTING from page 1stories he told were funny, she said. He would always have some thing humorous to say about certain events. Hed talk about some of the guys he met in the Army that became lifelong friends. Patrick said all veterans need to spend time telling children, spouses, nieces and nephews their military stories, no matter how mundane they may seem. When you talk about World War II, not everybody was on the beach do nothing. Well, yeah you did. You cant put any kind of discount on service to our country. All these tours were important because they contributed to the greater good. The project gives families opportunities to record the veterans stories and preserve them at the library. This stuff doesnt just get put in a box and shipped up to Maryland, Patrick said. It is made accessible to researchers. Its a history from the bottom up. We have 89,000 collections now. Thats oral histories with an Internet connection by going to loc.gov/vets. While the project has volunteers who regularly record veterans stories at public libraries and other places, Patrick said most of the See STORIES page 5 STORIES from page 2

Patrick said the project came about because of a son whod never heard his dads stories about military service. Fortunate ly for America, that son happened to be a member of the House of Representatives. It started very innocently, Pat rick said in a previous interview. Congressman Ron Kind was at a picnic and his dad was swapping war stories with a friend in the backyard. Hed never heard them before, so he whipped out his vid eo camera and started recording them. Kind talked with the Library of send a copy to add to the collec tion of veterans stories. No such place existed. Kind, of Wiscon sin, proposed legislation creating so others could record and give veterans stories to be archived into perpetuity at the Library of Congress. It started in 2000. Kamm said she wasnt aware of plans to look into recording her dads stories and adding them to the collection. Kampf isnt so impressed with himself. He said sharing his military stories with his children and grandchildren was just something he did. I didnt talk about it because I thought it was important, he said. I just liked talking about it. Patrick said Kampf just has no idea the gift he gave the family. If (veterans) dont tell the sto ry, its an empty chapter in the family history that will always go submit recordings along with other materials, such as copies of letters to the Veterans History Project, call (888) 371-4848, or email vohp@loc.gov.

He spoke the following in dedication to all might enjoy hearing what he had to say: you were to tell me that I am going to stand up here speaking to a couple thousand patriots, in English, Id laugh at you. Man, every morning I wake up thanking God for putting me and my family in the greatest country on Earth. I just want you all to know that the American dream does exist and I am living the Ameri can dream. I was asked to speak to you about my experience ese-American, but Id rather speak to you as an American. If you hadnt noticed, I am not white and I feel pretty comfort able with my people. I am a proud It took me eight years to get it, waiting in endless lines, but I got it, and I am very proud of it. I still remember the images of the Tet offensive in 1968, I was 6 years old. Now you might want to question how a 6-year-old boy could remember anything. Trust me, those images can never be erased. I cant even imagine what it was like for young American soldiers; 10,000 miles behalf. asylum. The war had ended. At derstanding that I may or may not ever get to see my siblings or parents again. I was one of the allowed to come to the U.S. Somehow, my family and I miracle from God. If you havent heard lately that this is the greatest country on Earth, I am telling you that right now. It was the freedom and the opportunities presented to me that put me here with all of you tonight. I also remember the bar riers that I had to overcome every step of the way. My high school counselor told me that I cannot make it to college due to my poor communication skills. I proved You see, all you have to do is to give this little boy an opportu nity and encourage him to take and run with it. Well, I took the opportunity and here I am. This person standing tonight in front of you could not exist under a socialist/communist environment. By the way, if you think socialism is the way to go, I am sure many people here will chip in to get you a one-way tick et out of here. And if you didnt know, the only difference between socialism and communism is an was my experience. In 1982, I stood with a thou sand new immigrants, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and lis tening to the National Anthem for this day, I cant remember any thing sweeter and more patriot ic than that moment in my life. Fast-forwarding, somehow I college, and like any other goof ball 21-year-old kid, I was having a great time with my life. I had a nice job and a nice apartment in Southern California. In some way and somehow, I had forgot ten how I got here and why I was here. One day I was at a gas station, I saw a veteran pumping gas on the other side of the island. I dont know what made me do it, but I walked over and asked smiled and said yes. I shook See FREEDOM page 10 The Ultimate Golf ExperienceA Public Course with a Private Feel ...

Veteran Voice is a weekly publication designed to provide information to and about veterans to veterans and to the broader community. Veterans are an integral part of their Florida communities, which currently have individual organizations of their own, such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, the Vietnam Veterans of America and many other groups with a narrow focus, but no convenient way to connect to a wider population of veterans and to the community in general within a limited geographic area, their community. The mission of Veteran Voice is to publish a weekly source of information that will provide, in one place, a listing of resources available to veterans, articles about changes in policies or organizations affecting veterans and events of interest to veterans as well as articles about veterans of interest to the general public. Veteran Voice LLC is organized as a partnership of experienced newspaper executives with an interest in veterans and in the communities of Florida veterans and friends. Veteran Voice is a start-up intended to address a perceived lack of information readily available to veterans on programs and policies affecting them and objective reporting of veteran affairs to the public. To our knowledge, and based on comments from lead ers of local veterans organizations, there was no media or website currently meeting this need until the launch of Veteran Voice. We hope you agree, and will support this publica tion with your subscription. Without subscriptions there will be a limited number of people we can help, without which this mission will not be realized. As part of our commitment to supporting local veteran communities, our readers and subscribers. Please let us know what you think by emailing news@veteranvoiceweekly.com or mailing your comments to us at 1919 S.W.
