As a former
DOD civil servant with the Inspector General at the US Embassy in Baghdad, I think often of the brave men, civil servants, like the men of Benghazi, who kept me safe when I traveled across Iraq. Mostly ex-Marines, ex-Special Forces and former Navy Seals, these private security contractors were killed in numbers in Iraq and Afghanistan, but their deaths were never reported, never honored, never counted.
As the numbers of deaths of our military became more political, more of these private security contractors were used, rather than Marines, to keep the Embassies, State Department diplomats and politicians safe, among other unknown missions.
They are the many uncounted, the invisible ones who sacrificed their lives for their country.
The brave men of Benghazi represent all those civil servants that have died serving overseas since 911.
I remember them today along with our fallen military.
