The following was written by former UDT/SEAL Rick Woolard in response to the recent Esquire article on the DEVGRU UBL shooter. The Command has been quietly outspoken about former SEALs getting out and writing books about their experiences. However, ironically it’s the same Command that has had the biggest OPSEC violations of the past decade, with No Easy Day, video game consulting, and side businesses that tip toe around the FAR (Federal Acquisition Regulations). The SEAL community could learn a few lessons from Delta when it comes to setting clear guidelines on what’s appropriate and what’s not.
Here’s what Rick had to say. I really respect his point of view, and we (SEALs) could learn a few things from the old guard. -Brandon
