The U.S. military does a really good job transitioning people into the military, but they do a really bad job helping them transition successfully back to civilian life.
Here is the story of one man, who not only served his country for 16 years, but he was the one who shot and killed Osama bin Laden. He was there when his country needed him.
But when work-related disabilities forced him to leave his Navy SEAL team before he qualified for retirement benefits, he was not given any assistance as he worked to rebuild his life in very difficult and dangerous circumstances.
Something is wrong when President Obama, who just happened to sit in the right comfy chair at the right time, takes credit for taking out bin Laden, then reveals the identity of SEAL Team 6, and jeopardizes the safety of the people who sacrificed so much to really make it happen.
"'No one who fights for this country overseas should ever have to fight for a job,' Barack Obama once said, 'or a roof over their head, or the care that they have earned when they come home.'
"But the Shooter will discover soon enough that when he leaves after sixteen years in the Navy, his body filled with scar tissue, arthritis, tendonitis, eye damage, and blown disks, here is what he gets from his employer and a grateful nation:
"Nothing. No pension, no health care, and no protection for himself or his family".
The following is based on a series of interviews
with the Navy SEAL who killed Osama bin Laden.
