    The poem was written
    by
    A MARINE CORPS Officer
    (Anon).
    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 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,
    and we fought til 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".

    In 1980's West Germany we used to joke about our standing orders should the Russians attack. Delta India Papa, or " Die In Place " in civilian speak. Not so funny now.

    Those SEALS (actually all of them ) have my undying respect. Obama on the other hand....if he were on fire I wouldnt piss on him to put him out.

    Those guys were true heroes. And not alone on that front. Many of their brothers died in the same hardass never quit, never out of the fight fashion.

    "And when he gets to Heaven,
    To Saint Peter he will tell:
    Just another soldier reporting, Sir,
    I've served my time in Hell.
