The former Navy SEAL Team 6 member who actually killed Osama bin Laden in the May 2011 raid on the al-Qaida leader's Pakistan compound says he's been largely abandoned by the government he served for 16 years, according to his first-ever public interview exclusively with Esquire magazine.

Identified as "The Shooter" because of what the magazine described as safety reasons, the SEAL says that despite killing the world's most-wanted terrorist he was not given a pension, healthcare, or protection for himself or his family when he left the military nearly six months ago,

"[SEAL command] told me they could get me a job driving a beer truck in Milwaukee," the shooter told Esquire's Phil Bronstein, who also serves as the executive chairman of the Center for Investigative Reporting. "My healthcare for me and my family stopped. I asked if there was some transition from my Tricare to Blue Cross Blue Shield. They said no. You're out of the service; your coverage is over. Thanks for your 16 years. Go f*** yourself."

I hate to say this but he knew that would happen going into it. When I got out after 10 years, and we're talking the '80s here, I knew damn good and well that all of my benies would be gone. So has every other troop who left the service prior to retirement. It sucks but it is what it is.

You lost me PP. The big O was never in the service. Since the individual in question is bitching about not having any benies after leaving the service, yet prior to retirement, he had to have known that it would happen.

He can still recieve care at a v.a. hospital, maintain his navy federal credit union account, mortgage guarantor via the v.a., the G.I. Bill, plus perks for job placement.

Also, there are many many firms that would hire him for his seal background, and he could surely make a fine income without even going to college. I would just hope he decides to live in a state that recognizes his 2A rights.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW
