Among the six security contractors was Kris Paronto, also known as Tanto. He and his teammates quickly gained fame as national heroes after the media filled our country with the details of the Battle of Benghazi, but they were American heroes long before then.  Mr. Paronto diligently served our country for many years and became one of the most talented, well-crafted fighters and defenders our country has known.

Now that he is no longer doing government work, he is using his advanced knowledge and skillsets in combat and weaponry to train others through a company that he and his good friend and fellow teammate from Benghazi Dave "Boon" Benton started called Battleline Tactical.

Kris is a former Army Ranger from 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, and private security contractor who has deployed throughout South America, Central America, the Middle East, and North Africa. He has worked with the US government’s Global Response Staff, the US State Department Diplomatic Security High Threat Protection Program, and Blackwater Security Consulting conducting low profile security in high-threat environments throughout the world.
