“The Battling Boys of Benghazi”
I read this poem on the air this (Wed.) morning in honor of some recent veterans and a listener asked that we post it online. The poem was passed along to me by a KSEN listener who said it was read by an ex-navy seal who was interviewed by Fox News regarding a book he had written.
At the end of the interview he asked if he could make a comment on Benghazi. He then thanked Fox News for keeping the story in the news, since other organizations were not. He said that the seals who died deserve the public knowing the truth about the whole affair.
The poem was said to be written by an anonymous Marine Corps officer: It goes like this;
We're the battling boys of Benghazi, No fame, no glory, no paparrazi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell, defending our 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 til we died.
We gave our all for our Uncle Sam, but Barack and Hillary didn't give a damn.
Just two dead Seals who carried the load, No thanks to us....we were just "Bumps in the Road."
The final words in quotes were reference of the President referring to the Benghazi incident as "a bump in the road."
