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.
The Long Beach native of Lebanese heritage is buried at the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery.
Members of his family are scheduled to attend the ceremony.
