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.

"The Man Who Killed Osama bin Laden... Is Screwed," starts with this sentence:

The man who shot and killed Osama bin Laden sat in a wicker chair in my backyard, wondering how he was going to feed his wife and kids or pay for their medical care.

 It's impossible to read that sentence and not drop everything to read the read the remainder of Esquire's lengthy profile of the Navy SEAL who fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden. 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.
"They [SEAL command] told me they could get me a job driving a beer truck in Milwaukee" under an assumed identity. Like Mafia snitches, they would not be able to contact their families or friends. "We'd lose everything."
