Navy Petty Officer
PO2 (EOD2)(Explosive Ordnance Disposal) Mike Monsoor, a Navy EOD
Technician, was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously
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, SEAL's 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, eac h 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 every day.
Since the media won't make this news, I choose to make it news by
forwardi ng it onto you guys. I am damn proud of our military. If you
are proud too, please pass this on. If not then rest assured that
these fine men and women of our military will continu e to serve and
protect.

Keep protecting us Mike, your job is to always serve!
