I continue to be amazed that performance of our brave men and women in the armed services. The rest of the government is falling down around us while the armed services seems to continue to perform at an extremely high level. If memory serves, this is the second Medal of Honor winner (I’m not sure that this is the correct term since you almost have to be injured or killed to get the award.) that I have mentioned on my blog from the Afghanistan/Iraq war conflicts.In the Vietnam film, The Boys in Company C., a grenade is thrown outside of a officers mess. One of the characters, without hesitation, jumps on the grenade. It was a very graphic scene. It left me rather numb. Petty Officer second class Michael A. Monsoor did exactly that in Iraq. Monsoor has already won the Silver Star for pulling a fellow wounded Seal to safety in May of 2006.
I look forward to bringing you the video of this ceremony. (got it)
