I would like to pause for a moment of silence in honor of Michael A Monsoor, the Navy Seal who jumped on top of a grenade that would have hurt or killed his team mates on a roof in Iraq. He died as a result of his injuries, but his team survived.

He received the Congressional Medal of Honor posthumously today in the East Room of the White House. He is the third member of our armed forces active in Iraq to receive the Medal of Honor.

In May, Monsoor had pulled fellow armed forces personnel out of harms way, earning himself the Silver Star. Michael A. Monsoor earned his medal the hard way, may the lord smile upon him when he reaches the pearly gates, for his time in Hell is over.
