It has been quite some time since we last featured the Navy SEALs who were accused of assaulting a suspected terrorist. Things have turned out favorably, and we were quick to rejoice the exoneration of Matthew McCabe, Julio Huertas and Jonathan Keefe. McCabe had been quoted as saying that it was time to “put things behind us.”
While the case itself is essentially over and done with, the SEALs’ expenses are not. A press release on Email Wire shares that the 3 Navy SEALs still have approximately $50 thousand in legal fees that are still outstanding.
A networking group in Houston, InHouston, has chosen Support The SEALs as its charity for the month of July during an InHouston mixer on July 14. InHouston is incorporating a featured monthly charity with its business networking mixers and have chosen to raise money to help defray the legal accountabilities of the Navy SEALs.
InHouston is inviting those who are interested to join what was described as the “largest networking event” for InHouston as well as InHouston’s fastest growing groups, InHouston Charity Connection, in support of the Navy SEALs. As a quick look back at the events from last year, InHouston reminds people of the fact that the SEALs were charged with assault after capturing a terrorist accused of killing four American contractors. It was because of this that Navy SEALs who put their lives on the line racked up a mountain of debt.
InHouston rightly declares that Navy SEALs McCabe, Huertas and Keefe do not deserve to be weighed down by these debts. On the contrary, they deserve whatever assistance we are able and willing to give them.
