Subject: NAVY PETTY OFFICER MIKE MONSOOR'S FUNERAL
PO2 (EOD2) 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 , 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 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.

NAVY PETTY OFFICER MIKE MONSOOR'S FUNERAL
I don't believe in war at all, nor do I trust in our Generals and civilian leadership. They are crooked, demented individuals and are doing their part to dismantle America.
I do believe in Americans and their service to our country through the armed forces. Below is a notice about 1 such American, a rare one for sure, deserving our notice and respect for his sacrafice. His glory, however is his family's loss and they too should be remembered.
