    Default SEAL PO2 Mike Monsoor's Funeral SEAL Custom

    PO2 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, SEALs 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 worthless rhetoric we see everyday.

    "All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.- T.E. Lawrence, "The Seven Pillars of Wisdom"
