Words are inadequate! Another hero lost.

Agreed, mere words are inadequate when thinking of this SEAL and all the Men and Women who make the ultimate sacrifice. Rest easy, my prayers are with his Brothers and family.

RIP

GOOD GOD !!! is right. RIP Sailor.

That's an expensive loss for the Teams. Both in the hero factor and the personell factor. You just cant replace men like this. I pray that he is memorialized for long time to come.

I am one of the local Blue Star Mom in Orange Co. Ca that delivers the Blue to Gold Star flags to our local families when they have lost a soldier. I was just in the process of writing a letter to include to the family of Officer Monsoor when I go visit with them, and thought I would check in with P.S. to see if I could gather some eloquent words...and found this post. Would you gentlemen and ladies mind if I included your postings to the family?

Please let me know ASAP. Thank you!

You can tell them that their son is a saint as well as a hero in my most humble opinion, Ma'am. For my part, I don't mind at all if you share my postings with PO2 Monsoor's family. God console and bless them.

PO2 Monsoor should receive the Medal of Honor for his actions. I hope to see that soon.

RIP, SEAL.
