Navy EOD Tech awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor
« on: August 13, 2008, 06:37:59 PM »


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.

This shows you the mentality of the Navy SEAL. Reading a book called The finishing school, about what it takes too become a SEAL and the training they go through. Reading the book shows you one thing. The men that wants too become and finally becomes a Navy SEAL, are men that are dedicated warriors, patriots that are willing too risk and give their lives for their country and their fellow team mates. There are a few words that can sum up a Navy SEAL. Honor, courage and sacrifice.

We salute you :salute:

There is no problem that cannot be solved by the use of high explosives.

I hate to break a mood, but I can't help but feel that somewhere, some poor sap is going to have to do a lot of paperwork to get 47 new badges issued.
