NVRDUL Management Signs Benghazi Hero John 'Tig' Tiegen

 NVRDUL Management LLC, a provider of professional management services to select actors, athletes, authors, musicians and celebrities throughout the United States, announced today the signing of John "Tig" Tiegen, Medal of Valor and Medal of Heroism recipient, Benghazi hero and Co-Author of 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi, in collaboration with members of the Annex Security Team and New York Times' best-selling author, Mitchell Zuckoff. 

As a retired U.S. Marine Corps E5 Sergeant and Infantry Squad Leader, specifically trained in advanced operational security (OPSEC) and readiness actions, for over thirteen years, Tig applied his military training as a special Security Protection contractor for Blackwater Security on over 40 missions in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, among other locations. Later, his work as part of the CIA's Global Response Staff (GRS) would change his life forever.

Now immortalized in the 2016 Michael Bay movie, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, Tig was an essential element of the U.S. response on September 11, 2012, when Islamic militants attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, killing four Americans: Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and two CIA operatives, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, both former Navy SEALs. Through their heroic actions, Tig and the Annex Security Team were instrumental in saving the over two dozen diplomatic and CIA personnel still remaining at the compound.

John "Tig" Tiegen &  Carri Hyde
While generally considered a quiet and precise security professional, Tig is not shy about voicing his opinions about the leadership at the time, and the further consequences of our country's then often misguided actions against radical Islamic terrorism around the world.  Closer to home, Tig shares his intense personal story as a motivational, riveting, and inspirational speaker, relaying his own actions and the combined heroic efforts of the Annex team fighting off Islamic terrorists in Benghazi, Libya for over 13 hours.

"Representing Tig is an honor for my company," said Carri Hyde, CEO of NVRDUL. "As a true American hero, Tig exemplifies the best our country has to offer. As a veteran advocate, Tig is devoted to making all veterans lives better.  As a motivational speaker, Tig is purposeful about spreading awareness about what really happened in Benghazi, and bringing his combat experiences into stimulating discussions about the importance of clear communications and teamwork. Tig brings both energy and a certain calmness when providing his first-hand account of military strategy, operations expertise and quick reactionary force efforts of the Annex Security Team, while recounting the thirteen hours of intense fighting against the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya. It is our pleasure to serve Tig as his management representation."

Tig has been featured on Fox News, The Blaze, Breitbart, Republican National Convention, PBS News Hour, ABC News and CNN, among many other news outlets.

    I was flabbergasted when I discovered John "Tig" Tiegen, the self proclaimed "Hero of Benghazi", was lying about receiving medals for valor and heroism. He's been saying for years he received something he referred to as the "Award for Valor and Heroism." I just assumed it was true.

    I'm doing research on a book I plan to write about Benghazi and its aftermath. I was doing my due diligence and wanted to find out what exactly Tiegen did in Benghazi that he was recognized for.

    When I found out there is no such thing as the "Award for Valor and Heroism", I was puzzled. Then, I remembered Tiegen said something about receiving two medals in an affidavit dated in December of 2018 affidavit. In his affidavit, Tiegen claimed he was awarded the "CIA Medal of Valor" and "State Department Medal of Heroism." I was shocked to find out there is no such thing as the CIA Medal of Valor or State Department Medal of Heroism.

    Tiegen would not answer any questions or provide any clarification about the award and the two medals he claims he received. So, I offered to donate $50,000 to his Beyond The Battlefield foundation, if he proved he received the two medals. The CEO of his foundation told me to "go away" and accused me of harassment. I am still shaking my head. It's hard to believe Tiegen would brazenly lie about something like receiving awards and medals for valor and heroism.
