>> mr. vaughn, i was reading about your son. and, boy, he was an impressive young man as a child, as a young adult, as a son, as a father, as a husband. he was a young man who stood out. why did he want to be a s.e.a.l.?
>> matt, i can just tell you that after 9/11 aaron told me and his mother that he wanted to be a s.e.a.l. and he said that he had wanted to ever since he was a little boy. and aaron, if i can just say it, god bless him, he loved his country, he loved god, he loved kimberly, and he loved reagan and chamberlain, and he honestly believed and saw black and white that what we were involved in, and he told me this, is a war for survival of our republic. aaron knows that the war, islamic fundamentalism, radicalism has gone on for hundreds of years if not thousands. and it can be traced through history. and he felt, and so did the other members of his team, felt that the very existence of our republic is at stake. and because of that, aaron was willing to give his life. and what i have to say is that s.e.a.l. team six, i just know those men felt the same way and they see it clearly, they see it black and white. so many of us don’t. aaron told me right out of his own mouth that he had a class where he said, dad, there’s three kinds — the man told us there are three kinds of people in the world, sheep dogs, sheep, and wolves. i can honestly say that s.e.a.l. team six are the desheep dogs. sheep dogs always see the warning, black and white, clearly. most of us are sheep. we don’t usually see it.
>> and there are some wolves out there —
>> go ahead, sir. i’m sorry.
>> there are wolves out there, and aaron explained it to me. and, you know, it’s really strange, matt, that — that 90 some odd days ago s.e.a.l. team six had a big victory and possibly sheep in higher places said things what made many of us very uncomfortable. and now some 90 some odd days later s.e.a.l. team six has suffered a terrible tragedy. i just pray that during these last days, these next days, they will allow s.e.a.l. team six, the wives, the children, the families to grieve, to bury their dead, and not make it political.
