Patriotic Guinness on St. Patrick’s Day

Here is a patriotic story that got sent to us.

“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 him “Who is this from?” he should reply: “It’s from LT Michael P. Murphy.” and point to the reserved 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!”


This is from Connecticut resident, Jeff Beaurline, who walked into his local pub on St. Patrick’s Day and purchased a pint in honor of Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, a US Navy Seal who was killed in action while serving his country in Afghanistan in 2005. Jeff posted the image below, along with his story, to the “Seal of Honor” Facebook page here.
