Seven members of Seal Team Six of the U.S. Navy have been punished for supporting development of a combat video game.
A senior defense official says the seals worked as paid consultants for Electronic Arts, in development of the company's "Medal of Honor Warfighter" video game. The official did not say what, if any, information the Seals revealed by participating in the video game's development.
The seven received a non-judicial punishment which includes letters of reprimand and forfeiture of half of their pay for two months. Official says four other Seals are under investigation for similar alleged disclosures.
