SGT 1st Class Jared Monti died on a rocky crag in Afghanistan three years ago.
He is receiving his Congressional Medal of Honor today and Barack Hussein Obama was NOT using his teleprompter and I could tell. He has NO honesty about him. He does NOT know what he is talking about. Obama is a fraud. He looks pissed off. He does NOT want to be where he is today.
SGT 1st Class Jared Monti is a TRUE American Hero and he is being disgraced by one Barack Hussein Obama.
Go to hell Barack Hussein Obama.
Well done SGT 1st Class Jared Monti.

Attention to Orders:
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty: Staff Sergeant Jared C. Monti distinguished himself by acts of gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a team leader with Headquarters and Headquarters troop, 3rd Squadron, 71st Calvary Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, in connection with combat operations against an enemy in Nuristan Province, Afghanistan, on June 21st, 2006. While Staff Sergeant Monti was leading a mission aimed at gathering intelligence and directing fire against the enemy, his 16-man patrol was attacked by as many as 50 enemy fighters. On the verge of being overrun, Staff Sergeant Monti quickly directed his men to set up a defensive position behind a rock formation. He then called for indirect fire support, accurately targeting the rounds upon the enemy who had closed to within 50 meters of his position. While still directing fire, Staff Sergeant Monti personally engaged the enemy with his rifle and a grenade, successfully disrupting an attempt to flank his patrol. Staff Sergeant Monti then realized that one on his soldier was lying wounding in the open ground between the advancing enemy and the patrol’s position. With complete disregard for his own safety, Staff Sergeant Monti twice attempted to move from behind the cover of the rocks into the face of relentless enemy fire to rescue his fallen comrade. Determined not to leave his soldier, Staff Sergeant Monti made a third attempt to cross open terrain through intense enemy fire. On this final attempt, he was mortally wounded, sacrificing his own life in an effort to save his fellow soldier. Staff Sergeant Monti’s selfless acts of heroism inspired his patrol to fight off the larger enemy force. Staff Sergeant Monti’s immeasurable courage and uncommon valor are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, Headquarters and Headquarters Troop, 3rd Squadron, 71st Calvary Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division, and the United States Army.

A little late, but...
This week's fashion don'ts...
You might think a posthumous Medal of Honor award ceremony would be a somber occasion, but not everyone would agree with you... For the occasion, Mrs. Obama debuted a new floral frock in a bold, red rose print, accessorized with green kitten heels and chandelier earrings.
Pundit and Pundette has the photo.
Michelle Obama's Mirror's Blog added:
For what it’s worth, I advised MO against wearing this dress. Pattern, style, all inappropriate. The O’s still don’t seem to get the whole war thing.
Screw MO. NO! WAIT!
