Skip to comments.President Obama Apologizes to Family of Fallen Soldier (SFC Jared Monti, Medal of Honor)
Posted on 06/24/2011 6:22:38 PM PDT by kristinn
Sgt. 1st Class Jared Monti was actually killed in Afghanistan on June 21, 2006. In September 2009, President Obama awarded him the Medal of Honor posthumously.
On his Facebook page this evening, Monti's father, Paul, posted: "FYI- President Barack Obama telephoned me personally this afternoon to apologize for his error in his speech to the 10th mountain division re: Jared's medal ceremony. Apology accepted."

So when is he going to apologize to America for screwing it up big time?
Great post. Comletely agree!
I certainly never felt he owed me an apology, just the Monti family.
Since it he delivered that, why should he announce it to me? Or you?
Otherwise, I expect him to do the right thing and contact the family of this fallen soldier and APOLOGIZE.
This man and his minions are marxists/socialists and therefore are the enemies of We The People....our country, our culture and way of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness is being threatened by this enemy within...destroy him and what he stands for, before WE are destroyed.
About 2 microns deep....
"Monti was born in Abington, Massachusetts, on September 20, 1975, to Paul, a school teacher, and Janet Monti."
I would venture to guess that Paul's favorite ice cream tastes like Obama's @ss, being as how he's a Taxachusetts skool teechur.
Never heard this one. Must memorize it. Good one, thx for posting it.
I do not believe that “forgiveness” means being a doormat. Sometimes you have to lay the smack down.
I'm stealing that list.
This punk doesn't care that he made this vile 'mistake'.
I understand that the Monti family may need to move on and accept it, but we don't have to.
The insult to the military and the sacrifice of our fallen soldiers is so offensive, there are no words......
_____all the juvenile and insulting “You guys”____
Yep - those 2 words have been running rampant in our nation - from the President on down.
How do we re-educate people when addressing an audience to say something like ‘boys and girls, you folks, you students, ladies and gentlemen - - ??
Such an opportunity to speak more correctly, especially to kids. They are listening - - -
My spouse can’t abide it when the host in a restaurant asks something like, ‘Are you guys ready to be seated??’
The gentle and friendly correction is something like “we’re not guys, we ARE seniors, and we’re ready to be seated!”
And the pastor in church - one “you guys’ after another. Or referring to more than one person in the Bible as “those guys!” Yiiiiiiiiiiiii !!!
Really sad. It’s hard to avoid all the public places where the salutation and constant referral is to ‘You guys.........’
BHO IS juvenile, and/but maybe still *c o o l* ???
I’d sure like to know who the puppet masters are. I have a feeling the GOP elite know who they are. Because the same strings are attached to them.
I have to say I would not serve this CIC. No way, no how.
