    Default Former wrestler posthumously awarded CMOH

    This is the first time I've ever posted something that I saw first over at "that other place" - but it needs to be seen.

    SGT. 1C Jared Monti was posthumously the Congessional Medal of Honor. Here is a link to the president's remarks.

    According to this article, SGT Monti was a New England champion wrestler from Bridgewater-Raynham HS in Bridgewater, MA.

    Patrick Lybert, who is mentioned in the President's remarks as one of those killed in this action, was also a wrestler and was awarded the Silver Star.
    2011 NAIA Wrestling Championships, March 3, 4 & 5, Cedar Rapids, IA. I'll see you there.

    Congratulations to Jared Monti for his MOH.

    What a tribute to your wrestling community that you take note and follow our Fallen. Your posting caught my eye as I am the mother of SSG Patrick Lee Lybert.

    Four <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" /><st1:PersonName>Soldiers</st1:PersonName> died during the battle and it's aftermath leaving behind shattered grieving families. First KIA being SSG Patrick Lee Lybert -as he courageously held position. We never forget, we shall never overlook. We grieve deeply our American Hero SSG Patrick Lee Lybert, holding in prayer as we weep for him, SSG Monti, PVT Bradbury. SG Craig - all killed that fateful 21 June, 2006.

    We grieve for their families and friends - and all our Troops who have sacrificed themselves for this country.

    I know Patrick would be very proud that his high school wrestling history still carries through! Thank you and God Bless!
