US Navy SEAL Mike Monsoor to be Awarded Medal of Honor

The White House MoH ceremony is today. Tomorrow, Mike will be inducted into the Hall of Heroes at the Pentagon. His name will be engraved beside the names of some 3,401 other service members who have also been awarded our nation's highest honor. Monsoor was previously awarded the Silver Star, the Bronze Star (with Combat V) and the Purple Heart.

Please take a few moments to read the complete tribute to this American Hero at Blackfive.

Update: Here's video of the White House ceremony. (Update 2009: The video has unfortunately been removed from the White House website.)
