U.S. President George W. Bush cries as he attends a ceremony honoring U.S. Navy SEAL Michael Monsoor with a posthumous Medal of Honor in the East Room of the White House on April 8, 2008. Monsoor was awarded the Medal after using his body to shield other SEALs from a grenade in Ar Ramadi, Iraq, on September 29, 2006. He is the fourth person to receive the nation's highest military honor since the U.S. invaded Afghanistan and Iraq. (UPI Photo/Roger L. Wollenberg)
