SEAL Gives Life to Save Comrades From Iraqi Insurgent’s Grenade | DoDLive

One of America’s more recent Medal of Honor recipients had a quiet demeanor and was dedicated to his friends and family – two of the qualities that fit the Navy SEAL mentality. So it’s no surprise that Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael Monsoor made that career his calling.
Monsoor deployed to Iraq in April 2006 with Naval Special Warfare Task Group Arabian Peninsula as a communicator and heavy weapons machine gunner, protecting his platoon from attacks in Ramadi.Monsoor was born in 1981 in Long Beach, California, and joined the Navy in 2001, when he was 20. Four years later, he became a SEAL, graduating as one of the top performers in his class.
