Former US Navy SEAL admiral who planned Bin Laden raid praises Florida students’ courage in wake of school shooting | Business Insider

  • Bill McRaven, a former US Navy SEAL admiral, praised the courage and drive of students who survived the deadly school shooting in Florida.
  • McRaven said he “learned to respect and admire their personal courage” of students who have become outspoken advocates of gun control after the tragedy.
  • While US politicians have remained deadlocked on gun control for years as gun violence reaches epidemic levels, McRaven said: “We adults can learn a lot from” the students.

Former US Navy SEAL Admiral Bill McRaven praised the young US citizens who marched for justice in the wake of a tragic school shooting in Florida that left 17 people dead.

 “People are often surprised when I tell them that I am a huge fan of the youth of America,” McRaven wrote on Twitter. “But I have witnessed the Millennials in action on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan and I have seen the nation’s remarkable teenagers as they work to earn a place in our college classrooms.”
McRaven is the former commander of the US Special Operations Command and helped plan the 2011 raid on Osama Bin Laden.
