Nevada Man Dies in Embassy Attack


A southern Nevada man is one of those killed in Libya during the Benghazi attack on the U.S. Embassy.  Tyrone Woods most recently lived in San Diego before moving to Henderson with his wife, Dorothy and  and their three sons: Tyrone Jr., Hunter and Kai.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Woods died helping to protect his colleagues. Woods was a  former SEAL with more than two decades in the Navy including stints in Iraq and Afghanistan.  After retiring, he opened ‘The Salty Frog,” a bar in Imperial Beach.

Since 2010 though, Woods worked to protect American diplomatic personnel in posts from Central America to the Middle East.  US Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service officer Sean Smith and Glen Doherty, also a former Navy SEAL, were  also killed during the attack.
