    "The Navy says he committed a selfless act: jumping on the grenade and taking the full force of the blast.

    President Bush presented Monsoor's parents with a posthumous Medal of Honor for their son at an emotional White House ceremony on Tuesday.

    Bush quoted one of the SEALS saved by Mansoor as saying, "Mikey looked death in the face that day and said, 'You cannot take my brothers. I will go in their stead.'"

    Yea, great story. I feel proud to say that this man fought for this country. All my best wished to his family.

    But we cannot forget the other soldiers that have done the same thing, who deserve this as much as Mansoor. Such as Spc. McGinnis is the Blood Brothers story. http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=3614007
