On September 29, 2006, Michael Monsoor and three SEAL snipers watched vigilantly for enemy activity from their rooftop post in Ar Ramadi, Iraq. When a grenade thrown from insurgents bounced off Michael's chest, he could have escaped. Instead, he threw himself onto the live grenade, shielding his fellow soldiers from the immediate explosion. Michael died thirty minutes later, having made the ultimate sacrifice.

George Monsoor (Michael's father) and Rose Rea show us in "Defend Us in Battle", Michael had prepared for this selfless act all his life--a life that inspires us to have a similar generosity of heart. Rose talks with host Jim Fausone about Michael, his family, his faith, and his sacrifice.
