Introducing our new co-branded design with American military hero, Mark "Oz" Geist - "Let 'Em Come"! We couldn't be more proud to have such a decorated veteran who has devoted his life in service to our great nation become a part of our Nine Line family. This partnership design, "Let 'Em Come" captures the essence of the courage, strength and motivation that Mark "Oz" Geist portrayed throughout his military career as a Marine and as an ex-military contractor providing security to a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya the night of September 11, 2012. On this unforgettable night in Benghazi, Mark, along with his team of five American ex-military contractors, bravely stood his ground as an army of Islamic militants stormed the compound with the intention to destroy it and kill the American military and civilian personnel within the compound's walls.
As we all know from the national news story surrounding the Benghazi attacks, and the later Hollywood film that was released in 2016 entitled 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, Mark "Oz" Geist, and his heroic unit of five other combat trained soldiers on his Annex Security Team, fought for 13 long hours through the night, defending the innocent Americans trapped within the compound from the terrorists outside.
Vastly outnumbered and taking heavy enemy gunfire from the militants charging the compound, the only thing that was certain to Mark and his team was that they'd never give up or surrender. With this courageous warrior mentality, Mark "Oz" Geist simply echoed to his team members right before the firefight ensued, "Let 'Em Come!" The rest of that night became a defining moment in history.
Our "Let 'Em Come" co-branded design with Mark speaks leaps and bounds to the kind of American hero he and his team are and have become since that dreadful night in Benghazi so long ago on September 11, 2012.
