Revelations over the leaked secrets emerged on Thursday. For two days earlier this year, the seven of them worked as paid consultants on a recently released video game, "Medal of Honor: Warfighter."
"Medal of Honor: Warfighter" was released on Oct. 23, 2012 for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC. The game is published by Electronic Arts.
Not only were these Navy SEALs, but they were members of SEAL Team Six, which was the team which ended up killing Osama bin Laden. One of them, in fact, was on that raid. All are still on active duty.
According to the report, while serving as consultants for the game, the SEAL Team Six members used classified material which had been given to them by the Navy. However, it is unclear exactly what secrets members were exposed.
The seven SEAL Team members have been punished already. All have received letters of reprimand which will reported limit - or even kill - their chances for promotion. They also had half of their pay docked for two months.
