"Bumps In The Road"

Recommended Posts

 

YOU WON'T FORGET

 
"A bump in the road" .... remember that calloused statement?  I don't know the author of this poem.. Received it today.  Very thought provoking and poignant.  I do recall, however, the President referring to the Benghazi incident as "a bump in the road."  Today I heard an ex-Navy Seal being interviewed on Fox News regarding a book he has written about how to handle crisis situations in our lives.  At the end of the interview he asked if he could make a comment on Benghazi and of course the anchor said yes.  He then thanked Fox News for keeping the Benghazi story in the news, since other news organizations are not.  He said the Seals who died deserve the public knowing the truth about the whole affair. 
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".

Don't you mean two X - Navy Seals?

I remember contractors died during that incident.

I would have felt MUCH worse had they been active duty at the time. Contractor's are PAID to take the risk.

 

Blame Obama all day long but Hillarious Clinton took FULL RESPONSIBLITY for the incident. Remember that when she is ellected in 2016. :(
