Got this e-mail today - no better way to pass it on - thank you to all that serve.

 

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
