    Default Medal of Honor recipient remembered as a selfless friend

    http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/09/...nor/index.html

    RAYNHAM, Massachusetts (CNN) -- It's a crisp New England day and Paul Monti is sitting in the backyard garden he built to honor the memory of his son, sipping coffee from his favorite Boston Red Sox mug, and nursing what he calls a "morning cigar."

    These are daily rituals that help him deal with his son's death three years ago, while serving the U.S. Army in Afghanistan.

    "I come out here and sit on the bench and sit in the flowers," says Monti, a retired schoolteacher. "This is where I get my solitude."

    And that's when the stories start pouring out of this proud dad, stories about how Sgt. Jared Monti -- who was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor by President Obama on Thursday -- always had the instinct to help other people.
