The Mount Soledad Memorial Association will honor fallen heroes with its Memorial Day Observance on May 27.

The ceremony includes music by Navy Band Southwest Brass Quintet, the La Jolla Country Day School Madrigal Singers, colors and a 21-gun salute performed by Marine Corps Recruit Depot Color Guard and Rifle Team, and a flyover in the “Missing Man” formation by the San Diego T-34 Performance Team. Old Town Trolley will provide complimentary shuttle service to and from the Memorial from nearby Mt. Soledad Presbyterian Church and the French American School parking lots, both located on Soledad Mountain Road.

Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, both assigned to security detail by the CIA at the U.S. Consulate compound in Benghazi, Libya, were killed in a terrorist attack at the compound on Sept. 11, 2012.

Both Navy SEALs, they will be honored at the Mt. Soledad ceremony with granite plaques commemorating their service. Navy SEAL Capt. Jason Ehret, who serves as deputy assistant chief of staff for Resources, Requirements and Acquisitions for Naval Special Warfare Command, will deliver the keynote address. Ehret was a close friend of Doherty’s.
