Jared C. Monti Scholarship Fund

This, my friends, is a two-fer -

First - We are given the chance to honor Staff Sergeant Jared C. Monti, U.S. Army. Go here and read Bruce's "Someone you should know".

But we also get to come together across party lines and work together. I think that feels really good in the middle of all the partisan attacks lately. We're going to put aside differences and come together for a good cause.

Join us supporting the Jared C. Monti Scholarship Fund
From Kevin
Sergeant First Class Jared C. Monti of Raynham, MA was killed in action on June 21st, 2006, while deployed with the 10th Mountain Division in Afghanistan. On July 24, 2009 Jared was posthumously awarded the highest honor our country has to give, the Medal of Honor. What, exactly, did Jared do to deserve such an honor?

At a time when partisan bickering over healthcare reform is at a fever pitch, Pundit Review and Massachusetts leading liberal blog Blue Mass Group are putting politics aside to try to raise money for to support Jared’s legacy and Scholarship Fund. Jared fought and died for all Americans, and supporting his scholarship fund seems like the least we can do in return.

Won’t you join us, by contributing and spreading the word through your blog and social network? We invite any other bloggers who would like to to join us to please do so.

Can't keep up with you, but I've bookmarked the page so I can donate, at least a little, to the scholarship fund.

Working together and crossing party lines to support this wonderful cause heartens me. I'm so weary of those fighting to make their voice heard and attacking people with whom they don't believe because they can't have a civil discussion.
