Fluor Corporation Lecture with John "Tig" Tiegen

13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi

About John Tiegen:

As a former Military Sergeant and Infantry Squad Leader, John “Tig” Tiegen applied his military training as a Security Protection contractor for Blackwater Security on missions in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq. His work as part of the Central Intelligence Agency’s Global Response Staff would change his life forever. His experience as an integral team member, taking part in over 40 overseas deployments providing low profile security in high-threat environments throughout the world, culminated in unexpected recognition on a global scale.

As the most experienced Annex Security Team member for CIA’s GRS, he was an essential part of the rapid response to the terrorist attack on September 11, 2012, when Islamic militants attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, killing four Americans, Ambassador J. Christophe Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and two CIA operatives, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, both former Navy SEALs. John received the Award for Heroism and Valor in recognition of his bravery. John contributed to 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi in collaboration with members of the Annex Security Team and New York Times’ best-selling author, Mitchell Zuckoff.

Before the lecture, all warriors and first responders who have either participated in our programs in the past or who are currently going through them will be invited to a special Warrior & First Responder Reunion event. This special event celebrating the contributions of our bravest citizens was conceived by one of our philanthropic partners, Highland Capital Management.
