I hope that SEAL Team Six Petty Officer 2nd Class, W. Kelly is no longer part of our armed forces. I also hope that he is entirely ATYPICAL of those serving with honor in both the armed forces and in the various special forces.

BTW, where did you get this information?

Did a google search and it came up. I know what you mean, we certainly hope our servicemen are more than paid mercenaries and that they are as pro-fellow countrymen, as the Russian soldiers were in St Petersburg when they refused to fire on the demonstrators or roll their tanks over them.

Hard to tell anymore.

I sincerely doubt that "W. Kelly" was ever in SEAL Team Six--that name for the unit went out of use long before that email was sent. Additionally, operators assigned to the Naval Special Warfare Development Group (the correct name for the unit in question) are not known for being chatty about their work while they're in that assignment.

Frankly, I doubt that "W. Kelly" was ever a SEAL, or even a Petty Officer 2nd Class. (Note that the elusive Mr. Kelly didn't have a rate, such as bosun's mate, radioman, or any other job specialty.)

I don't believe any SEALs ever took the survey. I believe LCDR Cunningham's version, that this was a one-time test given to 300 marines for his PHD thesis on operaions-other-than-war.
