SEALs in trouble over involvement in Medal of Honor: Warfighter

It's all the rage to hire soldiers as consultants for cruddy war-themed shooters. Developer Danger Close went to some Navy SEALs for help with Medal of Honor: Warfighter, and the Navy is none too pleased about that.

See, Navy SEALs know all kinds of secrets that they're not allowed to share, meaning they're not trusted with side jobs where the entire point is to share information about their day jobs. Seven members of SEAL Team Six (yes, the team that finally put an end to all of that Osama Bin Laden nonsense) have received letters of reprimand, essentially killing any hopes they may have had for promotion. They're also being docked half of their pay for two months.

It's not clear what, if any, secrets the SEALs shared with Danger Close. (That's why they're secrets.)
