AN AMERICAN HERO - Gone But Surely Not Forgotten...
Glen Anthony Doherty
July 10, 1970 – September 12, 2012
Glen Doherty was one of four Americans killed in a terror attack in Benghazi, Libya. Glen died in the attack against the United States Consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 12th, 2012. Although the attack began on September 11th, Glen fought hard throughout the night and saved many before succumbing to a mortar attack in the early hours of September 12th. Glen died serving with men he respected, protecting the freedoms we enjoy as Americans and doing something he loved. He is an American Hero to those who did not know him; but for those who did he is a best friend who leaves behind a giant hole in our hearts.
Words from friend and former Navy SEAL:
“My friend Glen: He would never pound his chest or tell you how great he was. Glen was a great listener and always had experienced advice. He was the jack-of-all-trades AND master of all. A rare person that was great at everything he did. A warrior spirit balanced by the kindest of hearts.
Glen this is me pounding your chest for you. Glen died protecting the Ambassador 11SEPT2012. I know, wherever you are, the surf is sic, the powder is perfect, and your smile is beaming. You are missed and never forgotten.”
- Clinton Emerson, friend and former Navy SEAL
