Congressional Medal of Honor – Monsoor

Our nation’s highest military award. It is awarded for extraordinary valor in action against an enemy. To quote the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, “The Medal of Honor is the highest award for valor in action against an enemy force which can be bestowed upon an individual serving in the Armed Services of the United States. Generally presented to its recipient by the President of the United States of America in the name of Congress, it is often called the Congressional Medal of Honor.”

Today this award is being presented by the President of the United States. Did you know that? Did you read it in today’s USA Today, NY Times, Washington Post? Did you see a blurb on CNN? I certainly haven’t seen a word. Now in fairness, perhaps they like to report after the fact but still this day has been on the schedules for a while now. There should be some attention being paid to it.

I was going to write a lengthy rant on this but, I think it is in appropriate. Instead, I ask you the head over to Blackfive. This is what we should be doing. If you cannot get to B5 you need to find a way, because you need to know Michael Monsoor. You need to know that there are heroes among us, and that there are folks who will / do / did “water the tree of liberty” without hesitation.

When you get to B5, take the time for the video clips.

If you are still interested go to the CMOH Society site for the history and background of the CMOH.
