Jeff Still, a former Navy Seal, is running for the Alabama State Senate in District 7 and he’s kicking off his campaign with an appearance from fellow retired Seal “Rob” O’Neill.
As most Yellowhammer readers will recognize, O’Neill is the author of “The Operator: Firing the Shots that Killed Osama Bin Laden” & “My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior and he became famous in what Fox News calls its most-watched documentary ever, The man who killed Usama bin Laden. In that documentary, O’Neill recounted the harrowing raid on Bin Laden’s Pakistani compound and the moments leading up to him shooting the Al-Qaeda mastermind on the raid.
On Wednesday, October 11, 2017, O’Neill is coming to Huntsville to help his former Seal buddy, Jeff Still. Those who sign-up to host the event can attend a VIP reception to meet O’Neill before the campaign kick-off begins.
