SFC Jared Monti Memorial Scholarship Fund

As most of you know, SFC Monti is the newest recipient of the Medal of Honor. Unfortunately, as with all of the previous awards of the nation's highest honor for bravery in both Iraq and Afghanistan, it was a posthumous award.
SFC Monti's family has chosen to honor their son and his legacy by creating a scholarship fund for local high school students to attend college. There is no finer way to honor Jared Monti's life and accomplishments and to keep his memory and the memory of what he sacrificed for this country alive than to help worthy young people who may not otherwise have the opportunity continue their education.
In an outstanding display of bi-partisanship, Pundit Review's Kevin Whalen has teamed up with a progressive blog, Blue Mass Group, to help raise money for the fund. Both blogs, who would agree on very little politically, have put that aside and are working together to honor a local hero and raise scholarship funds.
A tip of the hat to both blogs for their commitment to this very worthy cause.
You can go to Kevin's blog and hit the donation button or go to the fund's site to do so.
If you prefer to send a check you can send it to:
"Jared C. Monti Memorial Scholarship Fund, Inc."c/o Bristol County Savings Bank
108 N. Main Street
Raynham, MA 02767.
Tax ID# EIN 56-2599231
Thanks to the Blackfive community in advance for honoring this fine warrior's memory and contributing to his legacy. And if you have a blog, help out and spread the word.
