This story is strange for sure considering that many believe Bin Linden wasnt killed during that mission. Once they said They were going to bury him at Sea according to Islamic tradition, I knew right away the OS was BS.... They disrespected the tradition. Muslims are buried at Sea when they die at sea and the body cant be returned to land within 24 hours, thats the only way. They dont carry the dead out to Sea if they died/killed on land..

but this type of thing does happen to veterans which is sad of course.

Navy seal's only get 54k a year?!
That is crap money even if it is tax free.
I was making much more in a crusty old printing factory job.
What is the point of being classed as an elite soldier when you get just over $1,000 per week?

Why at sea? The official said that finding a country willing to accept the remains of the world’s most wanted terrorist would have been difficult, so the decision was made to bury bin Laden at sea. Furthermore, one suspects that the U.S. would not have wanted there to be a grave site for fear of it turning into a place of worship for bin Laden’s followers. There are rumors, however, that the U.S. asked Saudi Arabia to take the body (bin Laden was born there), but it allegedly refused.

I agree.

We have plenty of pictures of so many other assassinations over the decades, yet, the most popular individual of the 21st century as far as terrrorism and "figure heads" for new standards in laws & cultural thinking.... we get nothing?

We did get a good fictional tale that seems to have satisfied the majority.
And as far as history tells... the majority have been in the wrong throughout history.

Those of us who have doubts and are in disbelief in the OS are in good company with those who went against the mainstream and actually changed society for the better, moving them forward in progress and evolution. They didn't settle for "someone's word for it."

Soldiers get paid according to rank and duty not according to the fame or glamour.

Yeh, but the report says he is one of the more highly decorated.



“What is [hard] to understand is that a man with hundreds of successful war missions, one of the most decorated combat veterans of our age, who capped his career by terminating bin Laden, has no landing pad in civilian life,” writes Phil Bronstein, Executive Chair of the Center for Investigative Reporting, for Esquire.


SASR get double these guys make, he should come to Australia.

Once again more BS.

From the article: "The 'official' said". Which official??? No names again.

Nobody is willing to put their name on this because it is BS.

once again from the article: "It is believed that DNA testing was performed." IT IS ALL SMOKE AND MIRRORS!!!

WAKE UP!!!

Yea isnt it interesting that they showed Saddam and Qaddafi all over but yet forgot about Bin Linden in the middle but a little crappy picture claiming it was Bin Linden.

Most people rather be told information instead of them searching for information to cross reference the information that was given to them and accept every word for it. The evidence about this whole thing is very very little.

The evidence is actually non-existant.

Why is this guy whining he knew he would not get a pension if he left early. Since he is the silent hero I am sure some publishing company would pay him handsomely to write a book about killing Bin Laden. I hear fiction sells pretty well these days... That's what happens when you join an organization that is basically the enforcers of the gangsters who run the world. When they are done with you they throw you out like the garbage...

I bet he ends up dead from some unfortunate accident for fear he will spills the beans in the Bin laden production...

Unfortunately the guys that put this piece together are probably in charge of the production.

I wouldn't rule anything out when it comes to pen pushers depriving people who've served the country of their rights.
Over here we had a big public movement to ensure gurkhas got the full pension. What did the Whitehall bean counters do? Made sure that gurkhas were retired before the date at which they'd qualify for the full benefit.
They also put the older, more experienced soldiers and sailors on the redundancy lists as a way of cheating them of full benefits.
Read Tommy by Rudyard Kipling for an insight into the way a soldier is treated.

Yes, he might have been highly decorated, but you dont get a bonus for awards, except the MOH, I believe believe they get a monthly stipend for life, not too sure

Anyhow, the OP's story is NOT about who killed Bin Laden or not, I think he's trying to say this guy should be entitled to full RETIREMENT benefits, I disagree, he is entitled to AT LEAST 2 YEARS of FULL medical and dental upon discharge, so I dunno why he's paying for medical right now:




Veterans who served in a theater of combat operations or hostilities after November 11, 1998 have no copayment during the two-year period after separating from military service for hospital care, medical services (to include medications), and nursing home care for:
• Any illness that cannot be clinically ruled out as being related to your combat service. VA clinicians make these determinations with the utmost flexibility.
In addition:
• If you enroll with VA during this two year period you will maintain
enrollment status after this two year period.

Yes, MOH guys get a monthly stipend for life on top of any retirement and Disability Comp they receive. As for the rest of the US Military Forces we just get retirement (if we've been in 20 years or more), and Disability Comp if we've been injuried in a service connected event.

Or go to a VA Stand Down, and have a VA Benifits Specialist fill out the paper work for him (Thats what I did)

there's that, or he can contact his local VA rep and they can help him fill out the paperwork, or hell, he can contact a lawyer that specializes in VA claims

Yes or even have talked to the SEAL Assc. (LINK HERE TO udtseal.org)

The point is this guy had options (which is more then some of have) If he didn't know about these options then he either didn't pay attention during his TAPS course, or just trying to make an issue about this (I highly doubt that someone who was picked to be in a SEAL team is to idiotic to know about their out of service choices)

Or maybe his PRIDE is preventing him from seeing that in the civilian world he's just a guy, and not a highly trained soldier. Civilians don't see that just by looking, they need to read that in a well made resume, through talking about stuff (which I'm sure he can't talk about much of what he did), or through writing a book about something he did (provided that the DoN OK's the book)

Agreed. Too good to drive a beer truck but not above whining to the media when he took an early retirement.
Sorry but he screwed up, not the government.
Deal with it like the rest of us shlubs have to.
