Navy SEALs. Never Seals. UGH!

I'm horrified that this error occurs in professional writing:

It is NEVER Navy Seals.

Their proper name is...Navy SEALS!!! That's SEAL in capitol letters. And that is because SEAL is an acronym.

SEAL stands for: SEa...Air...Land. SEAL.

They can and do attack from SEa, Air, or Land...SEAL. Thus their name.

And they don't like being called damned bit.
