Benghazi Embassy Attack Survivor

Kris Paronto @ DUG Eagle Ford 2018

Kick Off Your Friday with Our Salute to an American Hero

On September 11, 2012, terrorists attacked the US State Department compound and a nearby CIA station in Benghazi, Libya. A team of six American security operators fought to repel the attackers and protect the Americans stationed there. These men went beyond the call of duty, performing extraordinary acts of courage and heroism to avert tragedy on a much larger scale.

Don't miss your exclusive opportunity to hear first-hand what happened during the thirteen hours of that now-infamous attack. Join us as former Army Ranger Kris Paronto speaks about his experiences in Benghazi during our special Opening Address, Friday, Sept. 21 at 8:30 AM.
