Glen A. Doherty of Encinitas and Tyrone S. Woods of Imperial Beach are former Navy SEALs and Libya Embassy security personnel who served the United States with honor and distinction. They made the ultimate sacrifice on Sept. 12, 2012, defending the U.S. Diplomatic Post and the CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya. The bravery of Doherty, 42, and Woods, 41, helped save the lives of 20 staff members when they took up arms in an effort to protect the facilities as they were attacked and killed by insurgents. Plaques to the war heroes were dedicated at the Mt. Soledad Veterans Memorial in La Jolla on Memorial Day, May 27, 2013.
