Navy tells SEAL to remove Trident from his book about Cairo, the hero dog alongside him on the Bin Laden raid | Task & Purpose

Nine years ago Navy SEAL Will Chesney and his dog participated in Operation Neptune Spear, the raid that killed Osama Bin Laden. This year he published a memoir on his dog, Cairo, No Ordinary Dog. However, on the same day it was released, Chesney and his publisher about the cover of the book. The Navy SEALs’ trident insignia appears to be on the cover near the title, and the Navy stated that they had trademarked the Trident. While Chesney pushed back against the decision, the publishers did remove the insignia. “I’m asking to use the insignia in order to honor my dog who was a Navy Military Working Dog and to tell my story, which received DoD approval prior to publication,” commented Chesney.
