Vets4Freedom, Gen. Petraeus, and USN Monsoor MOH

Vets For Freedom was covered by many bloggers, but I have one of the best posts which has the speeches, many pics, and witty humor. I also have the transcript prior to Gen. Petraeus' meeting with the goons. Let us not forget, EVER, US Navy SEAL Mike Monsoor, Medal of Honor recipient, posthumously.

The Vets For Freedom was covered by Jonn at This ain't Hell, but you can see it from here, and the title of his post is Vets for Freedom Rally for troops. He did a remarkable job capturing these amazing Veterans and other people such a lowly senators. Seriously, they couldn't hold a candle to these gents. There are many photos, videos, and thoughts. Please, check it out. They also went into the pit (the capitol) to speak with our representatives and senators about what is really happening on the ground over in Iraq and Afghanistan. Did I mention these are Vets from recent wars as well? Yes, and they deserve a read!

The transcript of General Petraeus' opening statement to the fools is made available by Blackfive's site. Gosh, I should always read something first. This is Uncle Jimbo's dream come true transcript. Yes, that means this is one they would like to put into the good General's mouth. Well, it appears that most of the speech could have been by General Petraeus with a few exceptions. Read at your own risk, if you don't understand humor. lol. Advance copy of Petraeus' testimony to Congress.

Now to come to a serious topic. Mike Monsoor. US Navy SEAL. HERO. He received the Medal of Honor today, posthumously. Blackfive has a very heart-felt and meaningful post for his friend. Yes, they were friends. I believe they became friends through e-mails, but still in all, they were friends. I know he did one of his 'Someone You Should Know' shows about him. There are also a couple videos with tributes for Mike from some pretty special people. Some of the pictures are contributed from the family of Mike Monsoor. Here is President Bush honoring Mike. They just don't make them like him too often...

Not to be outdone posting about USN Mike Monsoor, Stop the ACLU has noticed that the press has NOT noticed (at the time of sending this e-mail). Jay has written his own post, and he has encouraged us to do so as well. There is also a video on his post. Let Mike not go unforgotten. Thank you.

Today I am having an open post trackback, and you are welcome to trackback or ping an article you wish to share with others. I like to use Linkfest for this, because there are many people with good posts already up over there. It is also a good way to share your articles. Give it a go, eh?
