Oh yeah I forgot making money isn’t patriotic. I guess all the thousands of soldiers that have written books about their experiences should be
ashamed of themselves.
Wait a minute what am I saying? Nope there isn’t anything wrong with making money. Everyone should try it IMO.
Nothing at all wrong with writing a book I will probably read it.

Wow... You make a habit of putting words in folk's mouths? I have plenty already... No room for more.
Making money isn't "unpatriotic" and writing books about military service seems to be a natural step after leaving the military these days. I swear
over the years of trucking and buying books to pass the time in truck stops I came to think everyone who had so much as been in Vietnam for a week and
heard a shot fired, wrote a book about it.
No, I said what I did about motivation because if money is the *ONLY* .....and I meant *ONLY* reason that a an Elite US Navy Seal is breaking ranks,
making real discontent within the Naval Special Warfare Community and generally making a national spectacle of himself by the action then he's really
a shallow and pathetic human being to have spent such FORTUNES to train and trust.
In a more likely scenario, I'm thinking he has some things to get off his chest and have been eating at him since that night, either in how it's
been reported....who takes credit for it....or things that may have happened and we're not even aware at this point.
I'm concerned he's burning sensitive information about methods, as I've read some fellow Seals are as well. I guess we'll all know what is what
when the book gets out. IF it makes it out intact, that is.
