Medal of Honor recipient Navy SEAL Michael Monsoor:
His actions saved the lives of his three comrades and three Iraqi soldiers.
Incredible heroism.

I read about him yesterday, This fine young man had balls that clanked. From reading about him it seems that this wasn't the first time he showed his bravery... It is just too darn bad the only time we hear about outstanding sailors and soldiers such as PO2 Monsoor is after the fact....

wow, my neighbor got one of the other Medal of Honor's they mentioned, Jason Dunham of Scio, NY. He did basically the same thing, used himself as a flak jacket so his crew could survive. These boys make me proud to be an American, I just wish they didn't have to go.

Next time you have a chance, raise a glass in honor of those young men and the others, and give them a moment of your time. :( Scott
