The Battling Boys of Benghazi

January 21, 2014

The poem was written by a MARINE CORPS Officer (ANONYMOUS). Very thought provoking and poignant. Please read it and pass it on . . . it’s one way to keep the issue alive.
 
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 20 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 Seals who carried the load
 
no thanks to us – we were just “bumps in the road”.

  1. Powerful.

  2. Both anger and tears. It will be passed on.
