Mt. Soledad San Diego Honors Benghazi Victims on Memorial Day

This Memorial Day is set to honor two heroic Navy SEALs of the San Diego area. The two San Diego-based Navy SEALs that were killed in a Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012 will be paid homage at San Diego’s special Mount Soledad Veterans Memorial today.

During the Veterans Memorial on Mount Soledad, the Navy SEALs will be awarded for their courage and service during the Benghazi attacks. Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty will be honored with memorial plaques during the ceremony that will be donated by the Mount Soledad Veterans Memorial Association, as stated by spokesman Bob Phillips.

The Mount Soledad Veterans Memorial will take place at 2 p.m. The ceremony will include music by the Navy Band Southwest Brass Quintet and the La Jolla Country Day School Madrigal Sinters. The memorial service will also proceed with a 21-gun salute and presentation of colors for the two Navy SEALs in addition to an aerial salute in “missing man” formation by the San Diego T-34 Performance Team.

If you’re thinking about attending this unique remembrance on Mount Soledad, admission to the event is free. Bruce Bailey, the president and CEO of Mount Soledad Veterans Memorial, said this of the two fallen soldiers, “They gave the ultimate sacrifice in defense of their country. We felt with their local connections and with Doherty and Woods being SEALs that this would be most appropriate on Memorial Day to honor their service, their memories and their families.”

Glen Doherty was a Massachusetts native that enrolled in service with the Navy SEALs in 1995. Doherty, 42, successfully completed many operations prior to his retirement in 2005.

Tyrone Woods was living in Imperial Beach before his departure to the Middle East; Woods, 41, had over 20 years of experience.

Both of these incredibly heroic Navy SEALs must be remembered this Memorial Day. Come to this unique local event for the Fallen Soldiers and spend Memorial Day thinking about the true meaning of the holiday, appreciating our current military members as well as the ones that were stopped short of a full life.
