    Michael Anthony Monsoor was born on this day in 1981. He joined the U.S. Navy in 2001 and became a Navy SEAL in 2004. He was assigned to Delta Platoon, SEAL Team Three which went to Iraq in 2006. During a joint operation with Iraqi soldiers, an attacker threw a grenade which bounced off his chest onto the roof they were on. He was the only member of his team in position to get clear in time, but instead he quickly smothered the grenade with his body. He died half an hour later, having saved the lives of his team and several Iraqi soldiers as well. He received the Medal of Honor for his selfless bravery, and the new guided missile destroyer USS Michael Monsoor will proudly bear his name. Monsoor would have been 31 today.

    War kept you from having to learn German or Japanese.

    So why does Wikipedia show his BD as April 12?


    (Had to look up VG. A country singer/songwriter. Today I invented a word for a gag that must be researched: a Goog. Feel free to use it.)

    It doesn’t matter either way for his heroism – but it shows April 5, now.

    Mine was on the 3rd of this month and I know how Arlo feels.
    Know many but after a point, :Who’s that?" keeps coming up.
    .
    I will add some listed aren’t famous anyway.
    I’m not referring to people like, Michael Anthony Monsoor, but the reality show idiots out there. Yea, Jerky Shore I called you out.

    It is nice for the Navy to honor a true celebrity instead of the those famous for things that are not truly important.
