Doherty, Woods should receive Purple Heart posthumously

Editor,

I am a non-Navy veteran, and I encourage readers to write, as did I, to the Secretary of the Navy asking that he recall Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, the two SEALS killed in Benghazi, to active duty posthumously, now.

He should award them the Purple Heart, authorize their internment in the national cemetery of their families' choosing, and nominate them for the Congressional Medal of Honor.

These men, (despite being abandoned) like the Delta Troopers in Mogadishu who were awarded the Medal of Honor, kept the faith with their men and their mission that their commander-in-chief appears to have violated, indeed defiled.
