As a member of the CIA annex security team that responded to the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, September 11th, 2012, Kris "Tanto" Paronto (@krisparonto) assisted in saving over 20 lives while fighting off terrorists from the CIA Annex for over 13 hours.

His story, along with his five surviving annex security team members, is told in the book “13 Hours” written by Mitchell Zuckoff.

When you hear the words, "Benghazi, Libya" you might think of that book, and subsequent movie, 13 hours. You might think of the terrorist attack, the death of a US Ambassador Stevens, and the coverup that followed.

Today Kris joins me to talk about what really happened that night, the importance of living your life to a code, how to incorporate "Battle Rhythms" into your life, why every man must choose the "hard right" over the "easy wrong", and how we can all live The Ranger Way.
