Red Circle Foundation
The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation
On September 12th 2014 Red Circle Foundation, Operation Hawkeye and The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation will honor the memory of Glen Doherty and recall the bravery he and his teammates exhibited on September 11th and 12th in Benghazi, Libya 2012 that saved over 20 innocent people, through the Hero of the Day Workout called GD9.12.
As citizens of our great nation, we all enjoy the benefits of having highly trained military personnel protect our freedoms throughout the world. At times, as Glen did, they pay the ultimate sacrifice in order to protect us.
Red Circle Foundation, Operation Hawkeye and The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation were established to provide support to Special Operators and their families. At Red Circle Foundation we believe that a strong family unit is paramount in maintaining the mental and physical strength that U.S. Special Operations Forces need to carry out their assignments overseas; our mission is to provide enrichment scholarships for the children of Special Operators, and quick response gap funding in support of the families of fallen and wounded heroes. The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation helps current and former special operations professionals transition their leadership skills through education and training, enabling soldiers who are the ‘best of the best’ to redeploy themselves, and as a society, we all reap the benefits. Providing their children and families the ability to recreate; to learn and grow through having fun. Operation Hawkeye unites the general public with the SOF and basketball communities to close an awareness gap regarding the sacrifices of SOF warriors and needs of their families. The mission honors the fallen, informs others of their heroism, and advances actions that support America’s elite warriors and their families.
Red Circle Foundation, Operation Hawkeye and The Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation are dedicated to supporting these soldiers, their families and their children and helping them cope with the ripple effect that is a daily part of team life.
