SEAL Team Six members reportedly punished for their role as video game consultants

SEAL Team Six – America’s elite force and counter-terrorism group is under fire. According to CBS, about seven SEAL Team Six members were reportedly disciplined for their role as consultants for a video game. The seven members, who are still on active duty, worked as “paid” consultants for the recently release video game Medal of Honor: Warfighter, which has been published by Electronic Arts. CBS notes that seven members of SEAL Team Six used classified material given to them by the Navy as reference for the game.

Other detailed information remains unclear, but what is clear is that they have violated an unwritten law that SEALs have to be always covert and should shun the spotlight. Although the game does not recreate the Osama bin Laden raid in Pakistan on May 2, 2011, it includes realistic missions, such as the attack on the pirates in Somalia. “The seven who have been punished so far all received letters of reprimand which would kill their chances for promotion. They also had half their pay taken away for two months,” CBS adds.
