    Glen Doherty, 42, killed in U.S. Consulate attack in Benghazi
    By Steve Vogel, Published: September 14The Washington Post

    From whitewater rafting on the Colorado River to sniper duty as a Navy SEAL during the capture of Tikrit, Glen Anthony Doherty always sought out action.

    “Glen Doherty never shied from ad­ven­ture,” President Obama said at the arrival ceremony Friday at Joint Base Andrews. Doherty was assigned to a State Department security detail.
    “His fearlessness took many forms throughout his life but was always at his core,” his brother Greg Doherty said in a statement.

    Doherty, 42, was the second of three children who grew up in a close-knit family in Winchester, Mass. He attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Arizona but left to become a “ski bum” at Snowbird, Utah, his brother said. He also worked as a whitewater rafting guide on the Colorado River.

    Sean Smith, 34, killed in U.S. Consulate attack in Benghazi
    By Steve Vogel, Published: September 14The Washington Post

    Whether as a State Department information management officer, an Air Force technician or an online gamer, Sean Patrick Smith was much admired as a wiz on computers.

    The 34-year-old Smith, who had worked at the State Department for 10 years, was in Libya on a temporary assignment when he was killed in the attack in Benghazi.

    Smith, a native of San Diego, enlisted in the Air Force in 1995 at age 17. He served six years as a ground radio maintenance specialist, including a deployment to Oman, before leaving the service in 2002 as a staff sergeant, according to Air Force records. Smith was awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal.
