E080: An Interview with Robert O'Neill, the Man Who Shot Bin Laden
Robert O’Neill is one of the most decorated combat veterans of our generation. He is a former Navy SEAL, speaker, and the author of The New York Times best-selling memoir, "The Operator: Firing the Shots That Killed Osama bin Laden" and "My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior"
Few Americans are unfamiliar with the story of killing Osama Bin Laden. What most people don’t know, though, is the real-life story of the man who fired those three shots.
We were grateful to have Robert O'Neill on a Facebook LIVE for an interview and the only thing better than interviewing Robert O'Neill is interviewing Rob with his brother Tom. In between the jokes and the sarcastic comments, Robert shared his thoughts on the power of a positive mindset, the challenges faced by veterans and the value they bring to the workforce.
Oh, yeah - we also talked with Robert O'Neill about rescuing Captain Phillips and shooting Bin Laden.
Robert's brother Tom jumped right in and shared childhood stories, memories of visiting his brother, and some family jokes. Both O'Neills have their own opinions on the viability of the American Dream today, and they shared that, too, in this episode of American Snippets.
