Did I miss something? Did someone make a comment about the SEAL name?
At any rate I thank you for the defense. I believe the purpose of any
training program is to attract young people to a situation where they can
learn something that will help them in life. Certainly leadership training
fits into that catagory. SEAL name gets their attention and they then read
the remainder of the message. What ever works.
I have a close friend that was in SEAL Team one in Nam. He is proud that BSA
named a youth leadership training program SEAL. Not many of his unit came
When they did no one wanted anything to do with them. So he now feels good
that BSA and young people again have some respect for their sacrafice.
