Glen, or as he was known by close friends and family “Bub,” Doherty was one of four Americans killed during the 2012 Benghazi attack. A former Navy SEAL sniper and combat medic, Doherty served in both Iraq and Afghanistan in the Global War on Terror.
The auction on GunsAmerica is part of a larger effort to support veterans spearheaded by Magnum Research, a subsidiary of Kahr Firearms Group and manufacturer of the iconic Desert Eagle, and author John “Tig” Tiegen.

Tiegen co-wrote the book,“13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi.” In keeping with the theme of the book, Magnum Research and Tiegen decided to auction off 13 limited edition “13 Hours” Desert Eagles.
All the proceeds from each gun are being donated to different veterans charities across the U.S. (See the complete list of charities below). The one up for auction on GunsAmerica is numbered “4 of 13.” We’re calling it Bub’s Desert Eagle because the money raised will go to his foundation.
Like the rest of the “13 Hours” Desert Eagles, Bub’s Desert Eagle is chambered in .50 AE, sports a Kryptek Typhon pattern and is engraved with Tiegen’s logo and signature.
The grip of the gun features a Beyond the Battlefield Logo on one side, which is Tiegen’s personal foundation, and the Glen Doherty Memorial Foundation logo on the other side.
The auction is now live and runs until Veterans Day. Bub’s sister Kate specifically chose Veterans Day to honor Bub and every other hero who made the ultimate price serving our country.
