The SEAL Who Shot Osama Finally Breaks Silence, Says Navy Didn’t Treat Him Right

The SEAL Who Shot Osama Finally Breaks Silence, Says Navy Didn’t Treat Him Right
World

Imagine being the guy who shot Osama Bin Laden. You think you’d be treated like a king by the government and any and all fellow countrymen, right?

Expressions of gratitude for your bravery would be coming your way every day in every form possible. It’s smooth sailing after you kill America’s number 1 enemy.

Unfortunately, this is not at all the case. The Navy SEAL who shot Bin Laden has come clean to Esquire magazine about what his life has been like after that unforgettable mission, and it’s not what you would expect.

The anonymous SEAL has received no financial assistance from the government, and was not given any job security, pension or health insurance upon retiring from the NAVY after 16 years of service.

The only job the Navy offered him was a witness-protection like mission where he and his family would have to give up any contact with their former lives.

On top of that, his family is already suffering enough from his success. His wife and kids have been forced to memorize home and self-defense tactics, as if an attack on him or his family was inevitable. He is even considering transferring all titles and bill to his wife’s name just to sever his paper connection to the family to keep them away from danger.

He has no idea whether he will be able to support his family in the coming years.

The SEAL did not mention whether The Department of Veteran Affairs was doing anything to better his situation.

Having fun yet?
