Report: U.S. Rescue Team Was on Its Way to Benghazi…

The evidence is overwhelming that the United States had several rescue teams 
ready to go during the 2012 Benghazi attacks, but someone turned them back ...

We Added The Names (over three 1/2 years ago) of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens,  Sean Smith, Information Officer, Glen Doherty, Former Navy SEAL and Tyrone S. Woods, Former  Navy SEAL, “the Benghazi Four” To Our 9/11 Fallen Military Heroes Memorial in Venice, Florida...

 The 9/11 Victims and Fallen Military Heroes Memorial we built in Venice, Florida is the 1st and only in the entire country to HONOR Our Fallen Heroes who were abandoned in Benghazi by engraving their names along with Our Fallen Military Heroes on the walls of the 9.11 Memorial in Patriots Park in Venice, Florida, where the terrorist were trained and plotted the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Please know that we at Salt of the Earth USA have engraved the names of Navy SEAL’s, Michael P. Murphy, Danny Dietz and Matthew Axelson, along with 91 Navy SEAL’s, two (2) of which are recipients of the Medal of Honor including the 22 Navy SEAL’s who were killed on August 6, 2011, Extortion 17 on the 9.11 Fallen Heroes Memorial at Patriots Park in Venice, Florida.

We recently added the name of Christopher “Scott” Chris Kyle, Former Navy SEAL-The Greatest Sniper in U.S. Military History.

The 38-year-old father of two was remembered as the deadliest sniper in U.S. military historyaccording to the New York Times.

Thank you so much, Gene, for remembering my courageous son on his very special 45th birthday and the release of "13 Hours."

Like you, so many have reached out and it is making this day more bearable for me.  Please know that I continue to appreciate your holding Tyrone in your heart and honoring him at Patriots Park.  I know that he will always be remembered by the people in his grandmother's home state of Florida, and I know she is smiling about that.

With honor to all those who have served and sacrificed,
