"We Salute Our Fallen"

Navy Petty Officer Mike Monsoor

PO2 (EOD2)(Explosive Ordnance Disposal) Mike Monsoor, a Navy EODTechnician, 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, 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 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.

Democracy In Suffrage gives a women's rebel yell, and a salute to all who defend and protect our nation and troops...

We will remember...
"We Salute Our Fallen"
