Newsworthy Hero



The Sailor Pictured Below Is


(Navy Petty Officer, Second Class)


(Explosive Ordnance Disposal, Second Class)


April 5th, 1981 ~ September 29th, 2009



Mike Monsoor

Was Awarded The Congressional Medal Of Honor Recently

For Giving His Life In Iraq.
He Jumped On A Live Hand Grenade,

Saving The Lives Of A Large Group Of Navy Seals Passing By!


During Mike Monsoor's Funeral

At Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery, In San Diego

Six Pallbearers Removed The Rosewood Casket From The Hearse.

Lined Up On Each Side Of Mike Monsoor's Casket

Were His Family, Friends, Fellow Sailors, And Well-wishers.

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 That

Every Navy Seal

(45 To Be Exact)

That Mike Monsoor Saved Was Scattered Throughout The Column!


As The Pallbearers Carried The Rosewood Casket

Down The Column Of People To The Grave Site,

The Column Would Collapse,

Forming A Group Of People That 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,

Embedding It In The Top Of The Wooden Casket!

Then The Seal Would Step Back From The Column, And Salute!


Now For Those

Who Don't Know What A Trident Pin Is:


The Basic Navy Seals Program Lasts For Three Weeks,

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,

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 The 45 Slaps From Across The Cemetery!

By The Time The Rosewood Casket Reached The Grave Site,

It Looked As Though It Had A Gold Inlay From The 45 Trident Pins That Lined The Top!



This Was A Fitting End To A Final Send-Off For A War Hero!

This Should Be Front-Page News

Instead Of The Garbage We Hear And See Every Day!

Here's A Good Idea!

Since The Main Stream Media Won't Make This News

We Will Make It News By Forwarding It...

No fence-sitting

Which side of the fence?

If you ever wondered which side of the fence you are on, this is a great test!  


If a Conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one.

If a Liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns banned.    


If a Conservative is a vegetarian, he chooses not to eat meat.

If a Liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned.    


If a Conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.

If a Liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect, and special considerations.    


If a Conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation.

A Liberal expects the government and tax payers to take care of him as an entitlement.    


If a Conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels.

Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.    


If a Conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church.

A Liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced

(except sometimes non-Christian religions are okay, for whatever reason).


If a Conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or seeks a job that provides it.

A Liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his as an entitlement.    


If a Conservative reads this, he may forward it so his friends can have a good laugh

(or a good cry...)

A Liberal will probably just delete it because he's greatly "offended".
