HARRISBURG, Pa. (RNS) The Navy awards the gold Trident medal to those
who have earned the right to be called a SEAL -- the same elite fighting
squad that shot and killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.
The same gold Trident can be bought at a military surplus store, and
that's where the Rev. Jim Moats of Newville, Pa., got his.
