LEMON GROVE (CNS) - The Veterans of Foreign Wars is scheduled to rededicate its hall in Lemon Grove in a public ceremony Saturday in memory of a Navy SEAL awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously for heroism in Iraq.
The building will be known as Michael A. Monsoor Post 2082.
Petty Officer Monsoor dropped onto a grenade thrown into his position in Ramadi on Sept. 29, 2006, shielding three other SEALS and eight Iraqi Army soldiers from the blast. The 25-year-old died about 30 minutes later.
About four months earlier, he was awarded a Silver Star for rescuing and treating another SEAL amid attack.
