"Medal of Honor: Warfighter"  (Source: itechbook.net)
They all received letters of reprimand and a cut of half their pay for two months

Seven U.S. Navy SEAL members are in hot water for participating in the making of the video game, "Medal of Honor: Warfighter."

Video game developer Electronic Arts (EA) recently paid seven active and retired U.S. Navy SEALs to help in the creation of "Medal of Honor: Warfighter" in order to make it as realistic as possible.

However, the Navy wasn't too pleased with this move. It said that their participation was a violation of Article 92, which basically states that members of the Navy SEALs cannot disclose classified material to anyone. The Navy believes that these members provided classified information to EA for the making of the game, but it is unclear what this classified information was.

Now, the seven SEALs are facing punishment, according to the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). DOD said that a non-judicial punishment hearing was carried out on November 7 where the seven SEALs faced administrative proceedings. An NSW investigation is now being conducted to see if more members of the Navy were involved.

The seven Navy SEALs consist of two Senior Chief Special Operators and five Chief Special Operators, which all received letters of reprimand and a cut of half their pay for two months.

According to EA, they were unaware of whether the seven Navy SEALs asked the DOD for permission to participate first.

Back in 2010, EA's "Medal of Honor" was banned from military PXs globally because of multiplayer Taliban characters.

In the Military, it is known as the BIG GREEN WHEENIE.. Especially known in the USMC.. The NAVY, has it as well. Case in point for people to really understand..
AS a Marine.. AND i worked on a number of Navy Bases.. IF a Sailor or Marine, for instance, went to the beach, got a suntan, and got sunburned.. You could be in trouble..
If you went out in town, got wasted drunk.. Had PT (Physical Training), MORE so a Marine thing.. IF you got wasted, started puking up while running in formation.. If the CO, (commanding officer), Saw it.. Saw you leave the running formation, you could be in trouble..

Back to the sun tan\SUN BURN. I HAVE SCENE this. a Marine got sunburned on his back, and had trouble wearing his PACK, Granted the pack weiged 50lbs.. Marine couldnt wear his pack.. BOOM.ARTICLE 15.. Or in the Marines NJP (Non-Judicial punishment)..

Unit i served with. We got into a fight with some navy guys, At the end of the NIGHT.. 23 Sailors put into sick bay. NO Sick bay Marines. BUT A few Marines got the BIG GREEN WHEENIE.. IE, got jammed..

The most famous one.. Had 2 Marines, singing a NWA RAP song. This was 1990 Mind you. A FEMALE Marine, (only 1 in our unit), HEARD the song. BOOM!!!! 2 Marines standing tall infront of the MAN the CO.. ( A LT Col).. IE the silver oakleaf.. These 2 were going to be stripped of rank, for singing a SONG!!! They got out of the jam, when the CYBER Marine (IE ME), produced video tape of this WM (Woman Marine, OR WASTE of MONEY), had tape of her, stripping for us, while we were doing Helo Repelling).. Unfortunately, our detachment only 220 Marine Strong.. We were commanded by a LT Col, normally a LT Col is incharge of 3600 Marines, not a company. BUT with the Military, and its speciality units.. STUFF HAPPENS in which a high ranking officer is needed...

Long story short.. NAVY seals are like that. Their CO, a Commander or Captain, IE LT Col, or Colonel Equivelant in Marine land, When stuff happens, and rolls down hill.. MOST time it is for BS Reasons.. Those Seals knew better.. But even I, would have done a video game.. BUT.. Those seals know.. The training they do,, which they consider normal everyday things, are infact..Classified..hence the big GREEN WHEENIE..

What color is your wheenie for abusing capitalization, not knowing where a sentence ends, or for not making sense in general? Or do you not have a wheenie?

a 9th grade retard can score over 90 on teh asvab. that test is hardly any indication of one's mental abilities.

take the EDPT and get back to me on how well you did.

What the fk is your problem? The idea that not all Marines are stupid offends you or something?

The EDPT is only required for people trying to enter specific MOS, and concentrates specifically at logic and reasoning related questions and nothing else.

Get off your soapbox internet-smart guy.

Special operators I'm sure are above average in all regards, including intellectually.

I don't usually play grammar police on here, but if you are indeed a former soldier, is it to much to ask to use some degree of English? Out of respect for a Veteran, I will leave harsher comments out of the discussion.
