Navy SEAL Dies Saving Comrades
CORONADO, Calif. - A Navy SEAL sacrificed his life to save his comrades by throwing himself on top of a grenade Iraqi insurgents tossed into their sniper hideout, fellow members of the elite force said.God bless Petty Officer Monsoor. I pray he has a place among the “brave warriors” in eternity.
Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael A. Monsoor had been near the only door to the rooftop structure Sept. 29 when the grenade hit him in the chest and bounced to the floor, said four SEALs who spoke to The Associated Press this week on condition of anonymity because their work requires their identities to remain secret.
"He never took his eye off the grenade, his only movement was down toward it," said a 28-year-old lieutenant who sustained shrapnel wounds to both legs that day. "He undoubtedly saved mine and the other SEALs' lives, and we owe him."
Monsoor, a 25-year-old gunner, was killed in the explosion in Ramadi, west of Baghdad. He was only the second SEAL to die in Iraq since the war began. (AP)
“Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13)
“. . . They were brave warriors, ready for battle and able to handle the shield and spear. Their faces were the faces of lions, and they were as swift as gazelles in the mountains.” (1 Chronicles 12:8)

““The cowardly terrorists we battle will not stand up and fight our military like the valiant warriors they purport to be. They not only hide behind women and children, they fire upon us from mosques and then, when that fire is rightly returned, they scream to the media that we desecrated their “holy sites”” (Taylor).
