Yeah, this guys a hero. I’m a bit confused though… didn’t he die like five years ago? Why the thread?

Regardless, an incredible act.

He’s to receive the MOH posthumously. He died Sept 29, 2006. Also, the drive-by media suppressed the story originally, so it can’t hurt to repeat it.

A Navy SEAL sacrificed his life to save his comrades by throwing himself on top of a grenade Iraqi insurgents tossed into their sniper hideout, fellow members of the elite force said.

Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael A. Monsoor had been near the only door to the rooftop structure Sept. 29 when the grenade hit him in the chest and bounced to the floor, said four SEALs who spoke to The Associated Press this week on condition of anonymity because their work requires their identities to remain secret.

“He never took his eye off the grenade, his only movement was down toward it,” said a 28-year-old lieutenant who sustained shrapnel wounds to both legs that day. “He undoubtedly saved mine and the other SEALs’ lives, and we owe him.”

Ah, my bad. Must have misread the article, thought he died in '03.

And I doubt they “suppressed the story,” it just doesn’t make better news than the elections or whatever the fuck Britney Spears is doing.

I bowed my head in respect. Don’t do that often.
