Tea party seeks to honor fallen SEALS at Benghazi with sculpture


They loom over him, brandishing their weapons, their gaze steady. The sculptor can feel the presence of the heroes he honors in clay and bronze, U.S. Navy SEALs all.

And all of them gone.

“I am an intuitive artist. I believe and I feel that their spirits are in the room when I am working, and that they’re helping me finish that work,” said Greg Marra, a Florida sculptor who is a man on a mission. He is determined to tell the stories of fallen American warriors.

“I know it sounds crazy, but I feel their presence. That’s what happens when you’re creating a life-sized image of someone.”

Mr. Marra has focused attention on Chris Kyle — a SEAL sniper who was gunned down this year on a Texas shooting range — along with Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, former SEALs killed during the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. Also on the ever-expanding list of subjects: Adam Brown, one of 17 SEALs who died in the 2011 crash of a CH-47 Chinook helicopter in Afghanistan that killed an additional 13 Americans. Then there’s SEAL Team 6. Mr. Marra intends to immortalize those who took out Osama bin Laden and has picked “Payback” as the title for the grouping.

    “I want to take these few minutes today to thank our men and women in uniform and their families and to ensure them their government and their fellow citizens are determined to provide them with the equipment, training, and, just as importantly, the respect they have so richly earned. With their help, the United States remains at peace.

    Our allies enjoy the same benefit. Our national determination to defend freedom at the borders where it’s threatened is fully matched by the quality and spirit of the more than 2 million soldiers, sailors, airmen, and marines who proudly wear the American uniform.

    I received another letter from one of our ambassadors in Europe. He wrote that a 19-year-old trooper in our armored cavalry had asked that he send me a message. It was: “Tell the President we’re proud to be here, and we ain’t scared of nothing.”

    In James Michener’s book “The Bridges at Toko-Ri,” he writes of an officer waiting through the night for the return of planes to a carrier as dawn is coming on. And he asks,“Where do we find such men?” Well, we find them where we’ve always found them. They are the product of the freest society man has ever known. They make a commitment to the military—make it freely, because the birthright we share as Americans is worth defending. God bless America.”

    May Obama, Hillary, Soros and the rest burn in h@ll for all eternity.

    It would take the Tea Party to do this as Gov Tubs Christie and the mainstream loser GOP don’t have it in them for this kind of thing!
