We Will Never Forget

On Tuesday, MA2 Michael Monsoor was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his heroic actions which saved the lives of his teammates. During the presentation, President Bush said, "Mr. and Mrs. Monsoor, America owes you a debt that can never be repaid. This nation will always cherish the memory of your son. We will not let his life go in vain. And this nation will always honor the sacrifice he made. May God comfort you. May God bless America."

I first found this at Words from Warriors and then saw it again on my daily CNA email where they had a nice article. You can also read more about him here.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.
