Default Should the dude who offed Osama Bin Laden gone public?

Just curious. I mean I know he broke some military bro code but for real, shouldn't he be given a break? He shot Osama bin Laden in the face. Bravo dude.

Plus he hasn't been going around seeking anything more than recognition, I don't recall this guy saying he wants his own talk show or something like that.

Now if he was trying to get free food at Denny's and free nights stays at Marriott or something, that would be tacky but I'd even give him all that shit. He peeled UBL's wig back. Probably with one shot but we'll never know.

I know there are some military folks here and I'm just curious if you think he broke the code or if it's OK for him to blast it because he just can't hide that SEAL pride or something.

He tapped him two or three times to the grape with 5.56, there was not much left of his face.

That being said, I don't think he should have said anything. When I was working at at the clinic that covered DevGru, most of the guys were very humble and while it was clear who were SEALS, they tried to keep a low profile. Not sure why you would want to put a target on you and your families back like he did.

Side note, if you want you can find a full list of attachments and modifications of his particular weapon that he used on that op, so you can build your own "DevGru style" HK416 rifle.

I think the base H&K rifle without all the mods costs as much as a trip to Mars

The civilian version is the MR556 ($3,300) and there is a list of about $7500 worth of modifications. About an $11,000 rifle.

Of course, I doubt you can actually buy some of the mod's like the $5,000 ATPIAL laser unless you are active duty or a LEO.

Had it been me I don't know if I could have kept that secret forever. I know it is against code, but that's like finding out aliens exist and then not being able to tell anyone.

He should not have said anything at all if anything for the safety of his family. I never did anything like what those guys did but the few things I am not allowed to talk about due to opsec I will never tell anyone.

Thanks man I got a good laugh out of this. I was never in any type of special operations unit or anything like that. Opsec just like GH said is just what we call operational security in the military. It covers a ton of stuff and just about everyone has to deal with it.

I have no idea. I don't think they ever actually use a 3 round burst, mostly just semi-auto, it's a lot more accurate.

That's part of the job. I doubt they can, much less want, to tell their spouses about much of what they do.
