Tour of the US Warship USS MIchael Murphy. Barbados is the very first port of call for the U.S. Navy's newest warship, the USS Michael Murphy, which arrived 18/10/2012 on its maiden voyage. It can store 4 helicopters - 2 folded in bays, another 2 on deck with Tarp's. In the summer of 2005, a four-man Navy SEAL team consisting of Lt. Michael Murphy, and petty officers Danny Dietz, Matthew Axelson and Marcus Luttrell departed for a reconnaissance mission high in the Hindu Kush Mountains near the Afghanistan- Pakistan border. The team's target was Ahmad Shah, a local terrorist leader with close ties to Bin Laden who led a group of insurgents referred to as the "Mountain Tigers". Five days after insertion, Luttrell was the only SEAL to make it out alive.
