Osama bin Laden

How to Become a Navy SEAL

Our country is full of heroes. From the firefighters to the food bank volunteers, there are people, both seen and unseen, who make extraordinary differences in our lives. We give mad love to the guys and gals who slip quietly under the radar but that’s not what this particular post is about. This isn’t about the unsung heroes in our world, this is about the stuff legends are made of- stories of tragedy and triumph, determination and danger. This is about none other than the Navy SEALs.

The demise of Osama bin Laden was the finale of carefully planned efforts among military and government intelligence. Many men and women have given their time and their lives in order to fight for our country (both against bin Laden and other modern villains) but in the end, it was the Navy SEALs who delivered the swift end to a ten-year pursuit. The globe shakes with the news and with it, young men everywhere want to know how they too can become Navy SEALs.

The job description of a SEAL is outlined on the US Navy’s official website: “To become a SEAL in the Naval Special Warfare/Naval Special Operations (NSW/NSO) community, you must first go through what is widely considered to be the most physically and mentally demanding military training in existence. Then comes the tough part: the job of essentially taking on any situation or foe that the world has to offer … Conducting clandestine missions behind enemy lines. Capturing enemy targets and intelligence against impossible odds. Bringing a threatening act of sea piracy to resolution in the blink of an eye. When they say ‘The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday,’ it’s a motto backed by legendary achievements.”

A New York University business student thought he could make a killing from Osama Bin Laden‘s death; no pun intended. When Maurice Harary, 23, heard of Bin Laden’s death, he immediately designed a line of t-shirts celebrating his passing  and sold them on his website called Osamadeadtees.com.

Harary has sold over 25,000 shirts and has made over $300,oo0, but he’s giving that fast cash back. His get-rich-quick plan has not only brought him loads of money, but an enormous amount of guilt as well.

“I will now be refunding all orders on Osama dead tees,” he said. “Celebrating over the death of someone, whoever it is, is evil in my eyes.”
