Another Navy Seal Hero!

Navy Petty Officer Mike Monsoor

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, 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.

God Bless our Troops

Irony and Narcissism

Is it just me or does anyone else find it ironic and a little bit creepy that Ted Kennedy has given the Obama's a "Water Dog"?

And just in case you had any doubts about whether Mr. President is a narcissist, he named the dog "BO"!
