'Rid The World Of Those Savages!'..

Former SEAL Tyrone S Woods

Resident SEAL at Black Flag attended the funeral this morning of fallen SEAL Tyrone Woods.

Ty's widow, Dorothy, delivered an inspiring eulogy with more grace, poise, and fervor than I have ever witnessed from the spouse of a fallen warrior. I wish I had the entire thing on tape, as it should be read by the nation on the anniversary of 9/11 next year. Here are two quotes that I will never forget.
"It is easy to write a book about being a Navy SEAL, but it is very hard to write an obituary for one."

"To all the Operators here today I give you this charge: Rid the world of those savages. I'll say it again, RID THE WORLD OF THOSE SAVAGES!"

Amen ma'am.

No, we won't forget what happened in Benghazi on 9/11.
