Michael Bay’s Tribute to Special Forces in ’13 Hours’


Michael Bay’s movie 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi opens in theaters on January 15. The movie tells the story of the former military men working as security contractors whose heroism on 9/11/12 has been obscured by political controversy. We’ve got a video profile that gives some background on the movie and Bay’s longtime efforts to work with military veterans in his movies.

Check out the clip below and come back next week for interviews with the cast and real-life heroes they portray.

    “Special Forces” headline is misleading & should be changed. Americans who defended U.S. Benghazi facilities were civilian CIA contract employees serving as professional Soldiers In any case, I’m looking forward to the movie.

    Those are supposed to be CIA GRS, which draws it ranks from ex special forces. The fact that they’re “civilian” before their contract doesn’t take from the fact that they are SEALs and Marines.

    The simple fact is these guys risked their lives to save other people, and they did save people. They didn’t do it for money or because they had too, they did it because it was the right thing to do. If you have ever served, you would know that, you may not like the movie or agree with all the political correctness, or crap about Benghazi, but the simple fact is they saved lives and lost friends. You don’t have to like the movie or think it’s all about them, so I ask you. What have you done lately. If you served, I thank you. If you saved a life, good for them, you did what was right. But please don’t disparage their effort or sacrifice, if only you could be so brave. “Fortis Fortuna Adiuvat”
