SEALs punished for role in developing 'Medal of Honor' video game
U.S. News ^ | 11/07/2012 | Courtney Kube

Seven members of SEAL Team Six have been punished for supporting development of a video game released last month, according to a U.S. military official.

The SEALs worked as paid consultants for Electronic Arts, the company that made "Medal of Honor Warfighter." They received letters of reprimand and forfeited half of their pay for two months. The SEALs do not face jail time.

The official did not say what, if any, information the SEALs revealed by participating in the video game's development. However, a written statement from Deputy Commander of Naval Special Warfare, Rear Admiral Garry Bonelli, indicates this is more about making an example of these sailors after a string of high-profile SEAL products.

Probably need to define “REMF” for those were not in the military or those in the military that drove desks and never experienced daylight!

First, if Congress doesn’t question Susan Rice and ask her “WHO told you to say ‘protest over an anti-Islam video’ on all the Sunday news shows?”, BEFORE SHE’S APPOINTED AS SECRETARY OF STATE (When her ‘race/gender card’ will be in full force), then you’ll know the fix is in.

” forfeited half of their pay for two months”

Let's hope they made a bunch more than that from the game.

Just who was attempting to punish these guys in the first place? Was it the Whitehouse for getting all the money in such a production? Was it the princess generals/admirals for not getting a cut? I hope these guys got big bucks for working on the game.

Congress will not exist long enough to do that.

Their working for a private venture while on active duty is called “conflict of interest”.

If one did a similar caper in the private sector, you would be fired in a heart beat.

This comes on the heels of another Navy SEAL writing a book without the higher-ups approval. I think the brass are trying to nip all of these SEAL related commercial ventures before something really serious gets leaked.

This is likely ridiculous. They were most likely just playing the thing and providing their feedback. I seriously doubt anything sensitive was revealed that would compromise operations in any way.
