SEAL Team 6 member who reportedly killed bin Laden struggling to make ends meet
(MyFoxBoston.com) – The SEAL Team 6 member, who reportedly shot and killed Osama bin Laden, said in an interview that with no pension or medical care, he is wondering how he is going to provide for his family.
In an interview with Esquire, the unidentified Navy SEAL, who has since retired from his days of civil service, said he is unemployed, recently separated from his wife, and concerned about his future, reports the New York Daily News.
The "shooter," as he is referred to in the article, retired in September after 16 years; however, if he had remained in the military for four more years, he would have been eligible for a pension of $2,197 a month.
The "shooter" is also having trouble finding work because he cannot list his true credentials.
The Esquire interview goes into detail about the night the "shooter" killed bin Laden, as well as his life before and after military service.
The interview will appear in Esquire's March issue.
