ChipNASA: This has been debunked..This is Most likely BS and NOT the guys who offed Bin Laden.
FatherChaos: he's been left with no insurance, no job, and no security.WHAT?! NO!!! The HELL you say! America ALWAYS takes care of its veterans!/amiright?
mr0x: Good god, why is everyone milking Osama? There't the movie, the book, Obama, magazine articles and the ten guys saying they shot him.
born_yesterday: Thanks a lot, Osama!
durbnpoisn: ChipNASA: This has been debunked..This is Most likely BS and NOT the guys who offed Bin Laden.Before I read another word in that article or this thread, "bebunked" by who?
RangerTaylor: He's got the farking GI Bill which is awesome now that they pay you BAH while you are taking classes (living allowance).
Tell Me How My Blog Tastes: Yeah, he's got 5 years of free VA healthcare, so I don't know what the Esquire article is talking about.
mbillips: Him getting out after 16 years is weird. A few possible explanations:1. A medical issue that doesn't qualify as being injured in the line of duty, but keeps him from meeting the physical fitness standards. Most of this sort of thing results in a medical retirement, but sounds like he didn't get that.2. High year tenure. If you don't make E-6 by 16 years, they kick you out.3. He decided to quit.Nobody "retires" at 16 years. If you get out and don't have a pension, you didn't retire, you quit or got kicked out.That SEAL Trident qualifies you for very few jobs if you don't want to work security. You could be a diver, but SEALs generally aren't all that experienced in the sort of hard-suit work that commercial divers do.
rickythepenguin: RangerTaylor: He's got the farking GI Bill which is awesome now that they pay you BAH while you are taking classes (living allowance).unreal. I got something like $410 per month, then with COLA or whatever, it grew to about $650 (pre 9/11). It was still free money basically, but.....yeah. nowhere near what is now.i was talking to a guy a few years ago, well after 9/11, and he was getting PAID. tuition waivers, free books, BAH, the stipend had grown astronomically, and so on. nowhere near what it was when I was getting it in the late 90s/early 00s.
StaleCoffee: So, one guy killed OBL. Good to know. Thank you Cipher Nine.
