    Wolf, As a veteran, I am devastated by our recent loss of the Navy SEALs in Afghanistan. However, i have to ask you and the staff at CNN to please use the correct verbiage when discussing this event. The Navy SEALs are not "Special Forces". Special Forces are more commonly known as "Green Berets". The Navy SEALs AND Special Forces are part of what is referred to as SPECIAL OPERATIONS FORCES.

    Why is this important? When you report Special Forces soldiers are killed, it suggests Green Berets and family and friends, until it is further clarified, go through undue stress and worry until they know the complete story. They panic every time a vehicle pulls up to the house. Please tell the staff at CNN there is a difference between SEALs and SPECIAL FORCES (a.k.a. Green Berets) and ask that they use the correct verbiage when reporting the news.

    Thanks and congratulations on your six anniversary. Keep up the good work.
