Robert O’Neill Former Navy SEAL: A Silent Hero Speaks Out

Navy SEALS are considered silent heroes because they keep all missions top-secret. SEALs jeopardized their life to keep Americans and our United States of America safe. And, on some high risk missions they know it could possibly be a one way trip. Missions of stealthfully going into countries without permission are putting their lives in harm’s way.

I don’t know how former SEAL Robert (Rob) O’Neill actions of speaking out survived being accepted or condone by his SEAL friends. However, he felt it was the right choice for him to make. He is the SEAL who Killed Osama Bin Laden by his version. There are others that claim the same deed.

Rob was a leader, a SEAL, a trained warrior of action and he has the medals to prove it. He has 52 decorations: two Silver Stars, four Bronze Stars with Valor, a joint Service Commendation Medal with Valor, three Presidential Unit citations, and two Navy/Marine Corps Commendations with Valor.

Rob O’Neill met and spoke to some families who lost love ones in the horrendous September 11, 2001; America’s greatest heartbreak. And, for other countries who had love ones working in the ‘Twin Towers. 

Rob stated, the hardest part of being a Navy SEAL was kissing his young daughter goodbye before he left on a mission; because it could be the last kiss. 

He was a SEAL for 17 years serving his country and protecting our homeland. He began to feel complacent about being shot at and this is when he decided to leave the Navy. Rob was given an honorable discharge, but lost his pension.

He helped start a charity for veterans who are in transition from the military to civilian life. He did this because of the trials he experienced in his transition from the Navy. 

The name of the charity is: Your Grateful Nation Org.; which helps veterans who served this nation to keep Americans and Our Homeland safe.

There is a lot of controversy about a former SEAL telling anything while he served and after retirement/discharge from the Navy. A Code of Silence is their bond: “not advertise the nature of my work, nor seek recognition for my action."  

However, didn’t the Navy break the ‘Code of Silence’ with their participation and collaboration with Hollywood producers in the film ‘Act of Valor’ (2012)?

Then, the Navy cannot point a finger at Robert O’Neill because three fingers are pointing back at them: 1.) *Starring Quote: active duty U.S. Navy SEALS and U.S. Navy Special Warfare Combatant-craft Crewman: Unquote. 2.) In my research I found the Navy actually used this film as a training tool. 3.) Did the Navy break the ‘Code of Silence’ first?

Therefore, it could be said the Navy is gagging at a Gnat (an infinitesimal insect) and swallowing a camel. And, since I am not in the Navy, but my father was---and I honor and respect this branch of military as well as the all others. 

However, I do not like it when a veteran SEAL is spoken about in a negative way. Anyone, who does not or does agree with what Robert O’Neill is doing---please leave a comment. I appreciate it.

Navy SEALS Update

I am so proud to live in the USA where Navy SEALS are born and trained to protect Americans and people in other countries. And, when not on a mission they are doing work for charities. How wonderful is that?
     On August 21st, four Navy SEALS swam the Marine’s Sebago Lake about 13 miles and raised $80,000.00 for Camp Sunshine; that helps children with life threatening illness. The families and the children enjoyed a week at Camp Sunshine to relax and have fun.

The Heart of a SEAL Beats for Children

The $80,000 will help the sick children of military families go to Camp Sunshine. Only parents with sick children can appreciate the importance of a place like Camp Sunshine. Bless our Navy SEALS again and again.

·       Red Circle Foundation---2014 Gala is for Special Operations warriors, children and families of the fallen. This great organization started in 2012 as a non-profit to help monetarily instantly families in need.
Their goal is $75,000 for this year, and the date is September 6, 2014

Our Silent Heroes

I will be back with more updates. Sorry it has been so long, but I fell off my high back porch and broke by leg in February. I was in bed for 31/2 months because of the severity of the break. Then, I was in rehab learning to walk again from May through July. I did not intend to neglect my Navy SEALS. May you and yours be blessed with good health and happiness.
