"Medal of Honor: Warfighter"  (Source:
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.

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

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.
