Thank you to all of the SEALS for a lifetime of sharp swords and full hearts… you guys make America extremely proud

Americans yearn to talk to SEALs in bin Laden raid

By JULIE WATSON

SAN DIEGO — Patrons in bars across the country are raising toasts in the air, hoping the gesture of gratitude would somehow reach the clandestine Navy SEAL team that took down Osama bin Laden. Millions others are turning to social networks with their thoughts.

For many of them, it feels frustratingly incomplete to be deprived the chance to see the faces of those they consider heroes for killing the world’s most-wanted terrorist.

Scores of people responded to the question posed by The Associated Press on its Facebook page: “What would you tell the Navy SEAL team that killed Osama bin Laden if you could convey a message?”

“I don’t know what is more impressive – that you did this with such excellence and secrecy, or that this was just another day at the office,” Pamela Jardieu-Aderman responded. “Thank you to all of the SEALS for a lifetime of sharp swords and full hearts… you guys make America extremely proud, even though we never get to tell you to your faces.”

The 40-year-old freelance grant writer and photographer from Utica, N.Y., said in a follow-up e-mail to the AP that she is glad the SEALs’ identities are not being revealed to protect them, but she wishes there was some way the nation could show its gratitude on a large-scale. She suggested a tribute in the form of a White House electronic bulletin board for messages, or a national day of volunteerism, or a ceremony for the SEALs.

    I remember when I worked at a reenlistment office for active duty soldiers while living at Ft Bragg. I had the opportunity to meet some of our finest enlisted soldiers who reuped with the DELTA Force. I even knew one of the wives. I find it takes a special person who kinda likes danger and excitment. I often thought it was something in their brain that makes them that way. I am proud of all these special soldiers. I am also proud of all our soldiers. This president should get all the credit. Let’s face it if it had gone the other way they would blame Obama for everything.

    I sleep better and smile more knowing the SEALs, ¨The Quiet Professionals,¨ have our backs. These warriors put their lives on the line and scored a triumph over terrorism. And millions of Americans simply want to thank them.

    I get a little upset when someone tells me ¨We never landed on the Moon.¨ Men, good men, gave their lives so we could get to the moon. I feel the same about this operation.
