"MIKE MONSOOR"

April 5th, 1981 ~ September 29th, 2009

(Click on Picture above to read the official Navy Information on this proud American Hero!)

 

Mike Monsoor was Awarded "The Congressional Medal Of Honor" last week for giving his life in Iraq, as he jumped on and covered with his body, a live hand grenade that was accidentally dropped by a Navy Seal, saving the lives of a large group of Navy Seals that were passing by!

 

During Mike Monsoor's funeral at Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery in San Diego California, the six Pallbearers removed the rosewood casket from the hearse and lined up on each side of Mike Monsoor's casket were his family members, friends, fellow sailors, and well-wishers stood.

 

The column of people continued from the hearse all the way to the grave site.

 

What the group didn't know at the time was, every Navy Seal (45 to be exact), whom Mike Monsoor saved that day were scattered throughout the column.

 

As The Pallbearers carried the rosewood casket down the column of people to the grave side, the column would collapse.

 

This formed a group of people who followed behind.

 

Every time the rosewood casket passed a Navy Seal he would remove his gold trident pin from his uniform and slap it down hard, causing the gold trident pin to embed itself into the top of the wooden casket.

 

Then the Navy Seal would step back from the column and salute!

 

Now for those of you who don't know what a trident pin is or what it looks like, below is an example:

After one completes the basic Navy Seals program which lasts for three weeks, it is then followed by Seal Qualification Training,

which is 15 more weeks of training necessary to continue improving basic skills and to learn new tactics and techniques.

This is required for an assignment to a Navy Seal Platoon. After successful completion, Trainees are given their naval enlisted code, and are awarded the Navy Seal Trident Pin. With this gold pin they are now officially Navy Seals. It was said that you could hear each of those 45 slaps from across the entire length of the cemetery that day!  

By the time the rosewood casket reached the grave site, it looked as though it had a golden inlay from the 45 Trident Pins that lined the top!

 

This was a fitting end to an eternal send-off for a Warrior Hero!

 

This Should Be Front-Page News!

 

That is instead of the garbage we listen to and see every day.

 

Here's A Good Idea!

 

Since the main stream media won't make this news, then why not make it news by telling everyone you know about it.

 

We at Harv's are very proud of all the branches of the military and if you are proud too, please do not hesitate to tell as many as you can about those brave boys out there, who put their lives on the line so we can enjoy our freedom to choose every single day!

 

If not, then just turn the page....

 

But rest assured, our fine men and women of our military will always continue to serve and protect your freedom and right to do so!


"GOD BLESS AND KEEP OUR TROOPS SAFE!"
