American Hero - Navy Petty Officer Mike Monsoor

Subject: WHY WASN'T THIS ON THE FRONT PAGE NEWS??????????????

Navy Petty Officer Mike Monsoor


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.
(Notice: Mike was not a Navy SEAL, he was EOD.
He gave his life to save a group of Navy 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, 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 every day..
Since the media won't make this news,



I choose to make it news by forwarding it ..

I am very 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 continue to serve and protect.


God Bless our Troops

Thank You for the post. I had not heard of this. I believe The SEALs showed why they are so elite. I'm not sure how to say what I'm feeling other than I am very proud of all those innvolved.

Thank you MN hunter for bringing it to everyone's attention. The name Mike Monsoor should be a familiar name throughout the US.
