Navy SEALs disciplined over Medal of Honor Warfighter consulting

The US Navy has disciplined seven members of SEAL Team 6 for consulting with EA on man-shooter Medal of Honor Warfighter. The special ops chaps spent two days with EA without authorization from a commander, during which classified material slipped past their lips and they showed off their official combat gear--pretty big no-nos.

The US Navy has disciplined seven members of SEAL Team 6 for consulting with EA on man-shooter Medal of Honor: Warfighter. The special ops chaps spent two days with EA without authorization from a commander, during which classified material slipped past their lips and they showed off their official combat gear--pretty big no-nos.

That's the word on CNN's Security Clearance blog, which reports they've been given letters of reprimand and lost pay for two months. According to CNN, this is enough to effectively halt their careers in their tracks.

"Naval Special Warfare (NSW) takes all allegations of misconduct seriously and conducts investigations to determine the facts. We likewise take seriously the Non-Disclosure Agreements signed by Sailors and adherence to the articles of the Uniformed Code of Military Justice," Rear Admiral Garry Bonelli said in a statement.

"We do not tolerate deviations from the policies that govern who we are and what we do as Sailors in the United States Navy. The non-judicial punishment decisions made today send a clear message throughout our Force that we are and will be held to a high standard of accountability."

You hear that, special ops men? Don't do it. It's naughty. Not that consulting actual SEALs appears to have particularly helped MoH: Warfighter, which Andrew deemed another also-ran in our review.

        Maybe that's why they are disciplined.

      I don't know how big a deal this is after the Act of Valor movie actually filmed SEALS doing stuff but they should have known better than to do this consulting without getting clearance.

      A shame but I have no doubt they'll find work that leverages their expertise.

        The thing is, the military gave Act of Valor permission for all of those things, including the consulting. The Navy knew that everything in that movie was safe to show, and that it wouldn't reveal any seriously important info about the SEALS.
        These guys didn't even get permission, and they showed stuff that isn't exactly public info.
