I didn't know anything about this brave soldier until today, after watching the video I can certainly understand why he was awarded the Medal of Honor.

Please, let's not politicize everything. It's unbecoming of us as US citizens.

Rest In Peace, Sergeant First Class Monti . Thank you.

This time around it'll be the teabaggers spitting on returning soldiers for being "baby killers" fighting in "Obama's war", and Glenn Beck will be egging them on to do so.

Know what? The day that Sarah Palin STOPS politicizing our troops at every twittering or facebooking is that day that I will stop.

Today's service was very moving and much deserved. My initial posting was meant to make fun of all the sillyheads who DO politicize our men and women in uniform.
