ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the story of Navy SEAL Lieutenant Spence Dry. The story raises an important issue which the Department of the Navy should address. Like Dry, there are undoubtedly other members of the sea services who were killed in action while on clandestine missions, but who also, because of continuing security classification, remain in the records as deceased in training accidents or other non-combat causes.
