The Slaps Were Audible From Across the Cemetery. The Story About Navy Petty Officer Mike Monsoor (UPDATED - CORRECTED)

UPDATE: Link & story removed due to disinformation. The last thing I want to do is show dishonor to the fallen. My apologies.

"Nearly every SEAL on the West Coast" showed up for Petty Officer Michael A. Monsoor's funeral in San Diego's Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery.

"During the service, as Monsoor's coffin was taken from the hearse to the gravesite, Navy SEALs lined up in two columns. As the coffin passed, video shows each SEAL slapping down the gold Trident from his uniform and deeply embedding it in Monsoor's wooden coffin...."
