On May 1, 2011, a member of the United States Navy SEAL Team Six shot and killed Osama bin Laden. Now, nearly two years later, Esquire has published a profile on the man who pulled the trigger.

Phil Bronstein delves into the life of the man who made history in 2011 and what's waiting for he and his family in the future.
