The media rarely reports News such as this - please forward it to a few of your friends...God bless the men and women in our Military.

 

Navy Petty Officer Mike Monsoor a Real Hero
 
  PO2 (EOD2) Mike Monsoor, (photo) a Navy EOD Technician, was awarded the Moh_wtrident2top2sall_r10_c20 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 , SEALs were lined up on both sides of the   pallbearers route forming a column of twos, with the coffin moving up the   center.  As Mike's coffin p assed, 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 onto you guys. I am proud of our   military and the men and women who serve in it.  They represent the   highest and finest values of this country.
