Teaching Moral Theories Using "Lone Survivor"
Boyd, Barry L.
Journal of Leadership Education, v14 n1 p188-192 Win 2015
Four members of SEAL Team 10 faced a moral dilemma during Operation Redwings in 2005. Their mission was compromised when three goat herders discovered their position. They had to decide if they should kill the herders and continue their mission or release them, thus terminating their mission unsuccessfully. Students in an applied ethics class were asked which moral theories applied to their eventual decision.
