Michael Monsoor, a Navy Seal, has been posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor!
Michael Monsoor was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for throwing himself on a grenade to save his fellow comrades.
And a tear rolled down President Bush’s cheek on April 10, 2008 as the citation was read in the East Room of the White House.
And one of the survivors put it this way ..
"Mikey looked death in the face that day and said, ‘You cannot take my brothers, I will go in their stead’".
Monsoor was previously awarded the Silver Star for dragging a fellow wounded Navy Seal to safety whilst under fire.
