NVRDUL Management Signs Benghazi Hero John 'Tig' Tiegen
As a retired U.S. Marine Corps E5 Sergeant and Infantry Squad Leader, specifically trained in advanced operational security (OPSEC) and readiness actions, for over thirteen years, Tig applied his military training as a special Security Protection contractor for Blackwater Security on over 40 missions in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, among other locations. Later, his work as part of the CIA's Global Response Staff (GRS) would change his life forever.
Now immortalized in the 2016 Michael Bay movie, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, Tig was an essential element of the U.S. response on September 11, 2012, when Islamic militants attacked the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, killing four Americans: Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith, and two CIA operatives, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, both former Navy SEALs. Through their heroic actions, Tig and the Annex Security Team were instrumental in saving the over two dozen diplomatic and CIA personnel still remaining at the compound.

"Representing Tig is an honor for my company," said Carri Hyde, CEO of NVRDUL. "As a true American hero, Tig exemplifies the best our country has to offer. As a veteran advocate, Tig is devoted to making all veterans lives better. As a motivational speaker, Tig is purposeful about spreading awareness about what really happened in Benghazi, and bringing his combat experiences into stimulating discussions about the importance of clear communications and teamwork. Tig brings both energy and a certain calmness when providing his first-hand account of military strategy, operations expertise and quick reactionary force efforts of the Annex Security Team, while recounting the thirteen hours of intense fighting against the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya. It is our pleasure to serve Tig as his management representation."
