Rest in peace, Michael. God Bless You!
September 29, 2008
Holding you all in my thoughts and prayers.


The Wind on The Downs

“I like to think of you as brown and tall,
As strong and living as you used to be,
In khaki tunic, Sam Brown belt and all,
And standing there and laughing down at me.
Because they tell me, dear, that you are dead,
Because I can no longer see your face,
You have not died, it is not true, instead
You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe;
I hear you laughing as you used to do,
Yet loving all the things I think of you;
And knowing you are happy, should I grieve?
You follow and are watchful where I go.”

(Written by Marian Allen during World War l )

Two lines that I wish you to keep near your heart…….

“You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe”


I did not know Michael, but I am remembering
his service. He is my hero. !

The Other Side

i'm over on the other side
where life and death softly divide.
left my skin and bones behind
now i'm over on the other side.

can you feel me there with you?
my breath is gone but i'm not through.
loved you then and i still do
from over on the other side.

i can fly. really fly.
below the earth ... all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

it's good here on the other side.
the sweetest songs...the bluest skies.
thank you for the tears you cried
but it's good here on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth...all through the sky.
tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side

the world is smaller than a needle's eye.
where life and death softly divide.
when you leave your skin and bones behind
i'll be waiting on the other side.

i can fly. really fly. below the earth ... all through the sky.
go tell em all i did not die.
i'm just over on the other side.

Hey Mike,

Just checkin in.

I leave for Boot this Tuesday the 30th. The only thing left on my desk at work are a few note pads and your picture, framed next to my iMac.

Wish I could tell you where I work 'cause they're being really cool to me, helping me with some money issues while I go show Great Lakes what a 39-year-old can do. Gotta remain tight-lipped about that though. It's what the CEO requested.

Taken a while to get to this point 'cause of my age. Met my recruiter at the SEAL Fitness Challenge at UCLA in February. My PST scores are well above the minimums, but I'm not Phelps or anything. Navy was kinda trippin on someone my age wanting in. Then I'd go up against guys half my age and destroyed 'em. Ha ha!

If I can't secure an age waiver to BUD/S, so be it. I'll be the best Master at Arms I can be, and I will continue honoring your memory for the rest of my days.

Your story changed me forever. Just told a lady at work today, "When you think your day is tough, walk by my desk and look at Mike. Then go back to your desk and suck it up."

Life is so funny, eh? I read your story, started training heavily, identified a guy on my team at work to promote and take care of things while I'm gone, made his promotion official yesterday, packed my things today, and am now chillin with my woman here in Fullerton until MEPS on Monday and then LAX on Tuesday.

God Bless You, Mike. Gonna try my hardest to make you proud.

God bless you.

I was so touched by the tribute to Michael at the Republican National Convention. I understand that his grandma Bonnie (Veronica) Foley and my mom Donna Garvey were first cousins and lived together for awhile in Prairie du Chien and LaCrosse, Wisconsin until George took her to California to marry. I was proud of his service even before I knew he was a shirttail relative. God bless all of you and thank you for your sacrifice.

Although I did not know Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael A. Monsoor, I hold him and his family in my heart and prayers.
Remember when times get tough that he is looking down from heaven smiling and protecting you.
Thank You for serving to keep our country safe.
May you rest in Peace with the Lord, and your hearts heal in time.

Monsoor Family,
I Truly Feel your loss, I hope that knowing how brave and fearless your son is helps heal your loss. As a young american with a family I thank you for what your son bravely did for his servicemen and our country. May GOD BLESS you, your family, and your loved ones.

Above and beyond the call of duty, keeping the highest traditions of the Seals and the Navy! PO Monsoor it is sad that your story never made the headlines. Our country does not hear of such deeds. The men and women who take the oath and wear the uniform are our very best. You were and are the best; of the best. I hope for you and your family peace. Thank you for the sacrifice you made for your brothers at that time, and for our country now and in the future. You will remain in my thoughts always.
Semper Fidelis,

Mike, because of you and other Americans like you, we have our freedom in this country. My thoughts go out to your family. Our nation is proud of you. As a Vietnam Vet, I understand.
July 15, 2008
You are a true American Hero. Heroes like Michael make me even more proud to be an American, a proud member of HeartMade Blessings and an honored member of Patriot Guard Riders not to mention a Vietnam Era Army Veteran.
