SEAL PO2 Mike Monsoors Funeral — SEAL Custom

#1
PO2 Mike Monsoor 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 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 worthless rhetoric we see everyday in the US Media.

that is a touching sentement. The bloke deserved to be treated with that kind of respect in light of his self sacrifice. It is just a shame he had to die to receive it...
