The Shooter

The Navy Seal who killed Osama bin Laden left the military with no pension, few job prospects and no protection for himself or his family. Why does one of the most decorated combat veterans of our age have no landing pad in civilian life?

For the first time, the man responsible for killing Al Qaeda’s leader tells his story, giving an in-depth look at the raid that changed history, and how the U.S. government has failed to help its most skilled warriors when they return home from service. Read the full story, produced in cooperation with Esquire.
