The Battling Boys of Benghazi, A Poignant Poem for Memorial Day

It is good to remember all of American fallen heroes this Memorial Day. Benghazi, Libya is one such place where America suffered the loss of brave men. There were three calls for reinforcements during the Islamic terrorist attack in Benghazi, but all such requests were denied by a yet-to-be-identified someone or someones in the State Department, the CIA, the military, or the White House. The following poem expresses the valor of the two American heroes who though abandoned by their government, yet fought despite the odds to the death to preserve the lives of fellow countrymen.

Hat tip goes to Front Line Magazine, which featured the poem below  in one of its articles today.

The poem below was written by an anonymous Marine Corps officer. It gives us pause today to pray for our wayward nation and its wicked leadership, which has strayed so far from America's founding principles, values and everything that has hitherto made it exceptional.
