Last month, I noted that Michael Monsoor was to posthumously receive the Medal of Honor, and yesterday it became official. President Bush presented the award to Monsoor’s parents in an emotional ceremony; video here.
Michelle Malkin has the transcript of the President’s remarks.
Blackfive notes that virtually no MSM outlets are covering this. Michael Monsoor is the fourth Medal of Honor recipient in the War on Terror. The New York Times only felt they needed to print an embarassing 78 words about the pending award, and then had to correct the story.
Again, my sincerest gratitude and prayers go to the Monsoor family. I can only hope that all of us in this country can find it in ourselves to be worthy of your son’s sacrifice.
John 15:13 – Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
