    Sometimes we forget what our veterans and soldiers do for us and their brothers and sisters in arms. While this is a couple years old, I just had it emailed to me.

    To all the veterans and soldiers here and abroad,,,,I salute you. You have my undying gratitude and respect. Thank you for keeping us safe.

    God Bless America!!!!!

    During Mike Monsoor's funeral in San Diego , as his coffin was being moved from the hearse to the grave site at Ft. Rosecrans National Cemetery, SEAL's were lined up on both sides of the pallbearers route forming a column of two's, with the coffin moving up the center. As
    Mike's coffin passed, each SEAL, having removed his gold Trident from his uniform, slapped it down embedding the Trident in the wooden coffin.

    The slaps were audible from across the cemetery; by the time the coffin arrived grave side, it looked as though it had a gold inlay from all the Tridents pinned to it. This was a fitting send-off for a warrior hero.
