The Navy has now removed gendered words including "brotherhood" and "man" from its official SEAL ethos—changing them to "citizen" and "warrior" instead.
President Donald Trump took exception to this change, tweeting: "I will be overturning this ridiculous order immediately!"
A major change in the first paragraph of the ethos not reads "I am that warrior" when it used to read "I am that man." Another change is to "common citizens with uncommon desire to succeed" when it previously said "a common man with uncommon desire to succeed."
Another change has gone from "the ability to control my emotions and my actions, regardless of circumstance, sets me apart from other men" has been affectionately changed to "the ability to control my emotions and my actions, regardless of circumstance, sets me apart from others."
And "brave men" has now bee changed to "brave SEALs," according to the Daily Mail.
Naval Special Warfare spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Matthew Stroup said: "The previous versions of the SEAL Ethos and SWCC Creed were written prior to the law allowing women to serve as operators in Naval Special Warfare."
Stroup noted: "The changes do not in any way reflect lowering standards of entry, rather they ensure that all those who meet the requirements to train to become a SEAL or SWCC are represented in the ethos or creed they live out."
"This improves the posture of the NSW force by ensuring we draw from the greatest pool of talent available."
The Defense Secretary Ash Carter ordered the military in 2015 to open all military jobs to women, including the most dangerous commando posts that were exclusively reserved for men. This made it possible for women to qualify to be in the Navy SEALs and other difficult jobs.
So far, there has not been a single woman to have completed the SEAL and SWCC qualifications after the rule change allowed for their entry. Stroup added: "To date, no women completed the SEAL or SWCC qualification training pipelines."
Former SEAL Gallagher reportedly shared a photo of an August 3 memo sent by military personnel on the pronoun changes. It shows that Rear Adm. Collin Green had approved of the changes, according to the Mail.
Green wrote: "The SEAL Ethos and SWCC Creed are our community's bedrock guidance. In order to provide more inclusive language, we have revised them to better reflect our diverse ranks now and into the future."
Gallagher was allegedly acquitted of indiscriminately firing at civilians and murdering an ISIS prisoner in Iraq in 2017. And though he was de-ranked in July of 2019, Trump reinstated him to Chief Petty Officer. He has since retired.
Gallagher wrote of the pronoun change in the ethos: "What a joke. To be honest I thought the ethos was always BS. Now I know it is."
"A creed or ethos is supposed to be written in stone, obviously ours is not and will sway to whatever political agenda is being put out."
