He's the former Army Ranger who was on the ground in Benghazi, and now he's coming back to Montana. Kris "Tanto" Paronto joins us on Tuesday's Montana Talks statewide radio show with Aaron Flint.

He'll be speaking at the Yellowstone County Lincoln Reagan Dinner coming up on April 25th. Keppler Speakers has this writeup:

Paronto was part of the CIA annex security team that responded to the terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, helping to save over 20 lives while fighting off terrorists for over 13 hours. His story is told in the book 13 Hours, and in the major motion picture of the same name.
