Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

Petty Officer Second Class (SEAL) Michael Anthony Monsoor, United States Navy
by Cordeiro
Today the media spotlight is focused on Capitol Hill where politicians and military men debate the pros and cons of the Iraq war – how long to stay, whether and when to withdraw. You’ll forgive me if I ignore them.

Today I wish to focus on one man. His country called and he answered. He was one of this nation’s elite warriors – one of those whose true gallantry is known to few and understood by fewer. Michael Anthony Monsoor was a SEAL.

You should go read about Petty Officer Monsoor – especially his brave act of supreme sacrifice for which he posthumously received this nation’s highest military honor – the Congressional Medal of Honor.



Godspeed, Petty Officer Monsoor.

Here endeth the lesson.
