B.J. Correll is a 14 year old boy in the midst of his second fight with Leukemia, but once he completes this fight he wants to join our country’s by becoming a Navy SEAL.
This young man gains strength from the example of those in our armed forces, carrying with him trio coins from the Naval Academy, the Air Force, and the Navy SEALs.
When former SEAL Stephen Brown heard of this, him and members of his unit went to visit B.J. and make him an honorary member of the elite team.
His mother said he’s having a tough time during his treatments and becoming an honorary SEAL made a massive difference.
“He shows the character of what a SEAL would be like. He’s very strong.” Brown said.

God bless B.J.!
From Task Purpose:
B.J. Correll, a 14-year-old boy who hopes to be a Navy SEAL someday, received a visit from veterans as he underwent treatment for his second battle with leukemia.
From his stay at the Duke University Hospital in North Carolina, a group of retired SEALs named Correll an honorary member of their elite team.
“He shows the character of what a SEAL would be like. He’s very strong,” Stephen Brown, a SEAL Swim Charities member told Fox 5 Atlanta.
Correll, who was first diagnosed with leukemia in 2012 and again in May 2015, decided he wanted to be a Navy SEAL after a class project in middle school.
