September 11th is of course the anniversary of the 2001 Al Qaeda attacks on the U.S. , but it is also the anniversary of the Benghazi Embassy attacks, in 2012. (Those events were recounted in the Hollywood film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi .) Please remember the sacrifice of J. Christopher Stevenson, Sean Smith, and CIA (former Navy SEAL) agents Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. Between them, Woods and Doherty reportedly dropped at least 60 of the attackers, before their position was overwhelmed. Please also remember the spineless worms in Washington, D.C. who decided to not back up the embassy staff when they were in dire need of help. Eventually, they will pay for that. Time wounds all heels.
Don’t forget that September 20th is Paratus. That is the annual survivalist gift-giving holiday. It was the invention of Commander Zero of the Notes From The Bunker  blog.
Today we present a short guest article. Because it is less than 1,500 words long, it will not be ncluded in the judging for the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest .
