The public is invited to attend this memorial service.

Organized by the Northeast Florida Benghazi Tribute Planning Team, the memorial tribute will be held on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 3 p.m. at the Times Union Center for the Performing Arts in Jacksonville. In addition to musical selections performed by patriotic chorus Let Freedom Sing and the Lifesong Ministry Team, the service will include military honors to remember the lives of Stevens, veteran Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, veteran Navy SEAL Glen Doherty, and veteran Information Officer Sean Smith, who were killed in the attack.

A special highlight of the memorial service will include remarks from members of the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi. In addition to the key speakers, Stephanie Jason and Capt. Ryman Shoaf, USN, Ret. – personal friends of the late Ambassador Stevens – will offer remarks.

Established in July 2013, the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi was comprised of more than a dozen high-ranking retired U.S. military leaders and intelligence officers committed to uncovering the truth on many unanswered questions surrounding the Benghazi attack.

“We are honored that two distinguished members of the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi are traveling to Northeast Florida to join us for this solemn tribute,” Team Leader Beth Heath said.
