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 posting 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

Great share, Trashy.

It's a beautiful, fitting tribute to a man who sacrificed everything for the betterment of an incalculable number of people.

RIP, Mike, and thank you.

You gave us everything you had.

I am glad that you posted this for all of us to read. I am glad to hear that we still have men and women in the armed forces that will do something like this for their fellow soliders. I am tired of hearing about people that think they don't have to go over seas to fight because they are just a paper pusher or only signed up to be in the reserves.

This was awsome. Many dont remember it but it was about two years ago when this happened, thats why its not front page anymore. People are doing a good job keeping his memory alive.
