Former Army Ranger Kris Paronto’s life has proven anything but ordinary. “Tanto,” a nickname given to him by his grandmother, became famous worldwide as a hero of the terrorist attack on the U.S. special mission in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012.
Tanto’s powerful story is told in the best-selling book, 13 Hours, as well as the new film, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, directed by Michael Bay.
Paronto was part of the CIA annex security team that responded to the Benghazi attack, when he fought terrorists for 13 hours and helped save 20 lives.
