Honoring Fallen Medal of Honor Recipient Jared Monti

Hero's Men Came First
(Listen to Taps while reading the poem.)

country as flag
America will proudly remember
a man of uncommon valor
who went beyond
the call of duty
regardless of self
to rescue one of his
wounded men.

Nor did he retreat
after two attempts,
going a third time
into the enemy's onslaught
of bullets and more...
coming within a few steps
before mortally wounded, himself.

Saying goodbye to his men
with a message for his parents,
Sergeant Jared Monti
made his peace with God above...
joining the eternal home
of America's greatest heroes,
where he basks in righteous glory.
Sergeant First Class Jared C. Monti - Medal of Honor Recipient (KIA in Gremen Valley, Nuristan Province, Afghanistan on June 21, 2006)
