Medal Of Honor Monday - Special Warfare Operator (SEAL) Michael A. Monsoor
Petty Officer Second Class (SEAL) Michael A. Monsoor received the Medal of Honor posthumously in a ceremony at the White House April 8, 2008. He received the award for his actions in Ar Ramadi, Iraq on Sept. 29, 2006.
On that day, Monsoor was part of a sniper overwatch security position with three other SEALs and eight Iraqi Army (IA) soldiers. An insurgent closed in and threw a fragmentation grenade into the overwatch position. The grenade hit Monsoor in the chest before falling to the ground. Positioned next to the single exit, Monsoor was the only one who could have escaped harm. Instead, he dropped onto the grenade to shield the others from the blast. Monsoor died approximately 30 minutes later from wounds sustained from the blast. Because of Petty Officer Monsoor's actions, he saved the lives of his 3 teammates and the IA soldiers.

The bill is called the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 (passed on October 26, 1970)
The Legislative Reorganization Act, changed internal procedures to provide complete transparency to our legislatures voting record. Which on its face seems like a law passed to benefit the people. However, in the subsequent years, there was an insurgency of lobby firms, special interest groups, and an exponential influx of private capital entering into the political marketplace.
