Former Navy SEAL Robert O’Neill made national headlines in November when he publicly announced that he was the SEAL Team Six shooter who killed Osama Bin Laden during the famous raid. Lost in the ensuing uproar and endless accolades was the fact that since getting out of the Navy, O’Neill has started a charity to help other special forces veterans transition to the civilian sector.

Feeling disaffected by the fact that he wouldn’t be able to retire after serving 16 years as a Navy SEAL and facing a competitive civilian job market, O’Neill founded Your Grateful Nation.

According to their official website, the charity only serves the special operations community and associated personal, offering support by providing “employment transition services, paid internships, cooperative education and family stabilization support.”
