    Medal Of Honor

    PO2 (EOD2) Mike Monsoor,a Navy EOD Technician, was awarded the CongressionalMedal of Honorposthumously for jumping on a grenade in Iraq, giving his life to save his fellow Seals.

    During Mike Monsoor's funeral in San Diego, as his coffin was being moved from the hearse to the grave site at Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery, SEALs were lined up on both sides of the pallbearers route forming a column of two's, with the coffin moving up the center. As Mike's coffin passed, each SEAL, having removed his gold Trident from his uniform, slapped it down embedding the Trident in the wooden coffin.

    The slaps were audible from across the cemetery; by the time the coffin arrived grave side, it looked as though it had a gold inlay from all the Tridents pinned to it. This was a fitting send-off for a warrior hero.
    This should be front-page news instead of the crap we see everyday.

    If you are proud too, please pass this on. If not then rest assured that these fine men and women of our military will continue to serve and protect.
