Michael Monsoor was the young Navy SEAL recently awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor (posthumously) for actions in Iraq. During Petty Officer Mike Monsoor's funeral in San Diego, as Mike's coffin was being moved from the hearse to the grave site at Ft Rosecrans National Cemetery, SEALs were lined up on both sides of the pallbearers route forming a column of two's with the coffin moving up the center. As the Mike's coffin passed, each SEAL, having removed his gold Trident from his uniform, slapped it down embedding the Trident in the wooden coffin; the slaps were audible from across the cemetery; by the time the coffin arrived grave side, it looked as though it had a gold inlay from all the Tridents pinned to it. At the reception afterwards, the SEALS were easily identified among the other military guests because they had a stack of valor ribbons with pin holes above where their Naval Special Warfare Device or Trident had been. youtube video is about 10 mins long, the placing of the Tridents happens at about the 8:45 mark. Also, at about the 9:00 mark watch for the big guy with the long red hair at graveside and listen carefully for a small sound from someone in attendance in response to his action. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CfK2BQCIIes Navy Special Warfare Trident insignia worn by qualified U.S. Navy SEALs.
