Inspiring hero of the 2012 Benghazi attack and subject of the book and Major Motion Picture, 13 Hours, Kris Paronto or "Tanto" as he is affectionately known in security contracting circles, is a former Army Ranger from 2nd Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment and private security contractor who has deployed all around the world.
