Simply put, Navy SEALs aren’t meant to be seen or heard–that’s part of why they’re so good at their jobs. Recently, however, their Special Forces unit’s unwritten code has been tested with the release of Act of Valor (2012) and the book No Easy Day by “Mark Owen” detailing the raid on Osama Bin Laden’s Pakistani compound.
According to CBS News, it would seem the Navy has finally found a way to put a stop to this exposure by making examples of seven SEALs who received paid compensation to help EA Games develop Medal of Honor: Warfighter. All seven SEALs reported to have been involved in the consultation have received letters in their file (making it nearly impossible to be promoted) and have been docked half-pay for two months.
The real crime here is that even despite the “classified” information that was leaked and used to make the game more realistic, MOH: Warfighter still failed to outsell a game called Farm Simulator 2013.
Let me repeat that.
