Benghazi Heroes

 

The Battling Boys of Benghazi

We’re the Battling Boys of Benghazi,

no fame, no glory, no paparazzi,

Just a fiery death in a blazing hell,

defending the country we loved so well.

It wasn’t our job, but we answered the call,

fought to the consulate, and scaled the wall.

We pulled twenty countrymen from the jaws of fate,

led them to safety, and stood at the gate.

Just the two of us, and foes by the score,

but we stood fast, to bar the door,

Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,

so we fought and we fought, and we fought till we died.

We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,

but Barack Obama didn’t give a damn.

Just two dead SEAL’s, who carried the load,

no thanks to us — we were just “bumps in the road.”

  1. Hoping the twenty countrymen led to safety remember to console the two families, and bring truth to the reports.

  2. Benghazi disturbs me more than any other provocative act of this administration. I think it is more personal than all the rest because it has a face.

    These men deserve to have their story told and those who left them to die need to come clean.

    This is a political issue to many. I get that. Whether it was incompetence or a policy choice to leave them to die, it looks bad for the Administration. Administration opponents and supporters have understandably manipulated the issue for political gain. But these men really were the people that boys dream of someday being, the kind of men who would rise to the challenge and face unbeatable odds with courage.

    I hope to see their story told in full one day.
