Friends and family share the impact Winchester native Glen Doherty, who was one of the four Americans killed in Libya, had one them.
Friends and family are mourning the death of Glen Doherty, the former Navy SEAL who was killed in Libya during an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Wednesday.
