Twin Cities Air Mail Center Distribution Operations Supervisor Steven Murphy was recently inducted into the Army Ranger Hall of Fame at Fort Benning, GA.
Murphy, a member of the 17th Ranger Hall of Fame class, was honored “for 26 years of exceptional Meritorious Service while serving in Ranger units in war and peace,” according to his induction citation.
The Ranger Hall of Fame was formed in 1992 to honor and preserve the contributions of America’s most extraordinary Rangers. The history of the American Ranger dates as far back as the 1670s. It is a long and colorful saga of courage, daring, and men whose skills in the art of fighting have seldom been surpassed.
Murphy began his Army service during the Vietnam War and served nearly 13 years in the Infantry, before becoming a helicopter pilot for another 13 years. He served two tours in Germany during the Cold War and in El Salvador during the insurgency. He joined the Postal Service in 1996 as a mail processing clerk and graduated from the Associate Supervisor Program in 1997. He has worked at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Bulk Mail Center, St. Paul P&DC and the AMC.
