"All SEALs are male members of the United States Navy. The CIA's highly secretive Special Activities Division (SAD) and more specifically its elite Special Operations Group (SOG) recruits operators from the SEAL Teams. Joint Navy SEALs and CIA operations go back to the MACV-SOG during the Vietnam War."

The Compass Rose and Freemasonry
The symbol for Travis Allen's 'Act Like Men' ministry is also called the Compass Rose. In the Scottish Rite Bulletin there is an article called The Compass Rose and The Philosopher's Stone Within the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry.
"...By the 14th Century the 12 compass points had grown to the full 32-point Compass Rose that we know today...[The CIA's Compass Rose is 16 points]
"...The 32-point Compass Rose was also used within what is known as a Traverse Board, which was a tool used for dead reckoning onboard a ship and allowed sailors to keep check of time while sailing on each rhumb line tied to the winds and the stars.
"...It can be considered that one possible inspiration for the introduction of 32 degrees [of Masonry] could possibly have been the Compass Rose. Indeed, we know that the degrees serve as moral and philosophical lessons, upon which we can navigate our lives. By moving from one degree to the next, we can learn more about our journey through life, and mark our time spent by using the 32 degrees of the Scottish Rite, to peg our life events upon our own personal Traverse Board."
