"No one who fights for this country overseas should ever have to fight for a job, or a roof over their head, or the care that they have earned when they come home," said President Obama said last Veterans' Day.
But as Esquire, in conjunction with the Center for Investigative Reporting transcribed, the reality that the brave men and women serving in our military face, is much different.
Unfortunately, this reality is no different, even for the man responsible for putting three bullets in Osama bin Laden's head.
For a year, the executive chair of the Center for Investigative Reporting, Phil Bronstein, sat down with the anonymous hero simply referred to as "the Shooter."
Bronstein's findings are not only equally revealing as they are disappointing, but are also chronicled in great detail in the aforementioned 15,000-word piece.
In a nutshell, "The Man Who Killed Osama bin Laden... Is Screwed," zeroes in on two main points: It is "most definitive account of those crucial few seconds" before bin Laden's death and the dishonor that, "a man with hundreds of successful war missions, one of the most decorated combat veterans of our age, who capped his [16-year] career by terminating bin Laden, has no landing pad in civilian life."
