“I am deeply saddened to hear of the death of Glen Doherty, who was slain while protecting Ambassador Chris Stevens in Libya. Earlier this week, we paid tribute to those who died on September 11, 2001 and honored those service men and women who are still fighting to keep Americans safe. In that same spirit, we pay tribute to the memory of Glen Doherty, who grew up in Winchester and bravely served as a U.S. Navy SEAL, and extend our thoughts and prayers to his entire family.”
