There is a unique invite to spend the day with ex-navy seal Robert O’Neill who had been responsible for the killing of the dreaded terrorist and the man behind the deadly September 11 attacks, al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. The SEAL Team 6 raid in Pakistan had killed the mastermind of the bloody 9/11 attacks on the U.S. soil, on May 2, 2011.

The invite is a part of a fundraising effort by the ForAmerica organisation -- a conservative group. Those interested have to shell out 50,000 US dollars to shoot guns and to cherish the company of O’Neill in June this year. They have until May 10 to RSVP for an event at the Amangani Resort Hotel in Jackson Hole located at Wyoming. 

The former U.S. navy seal veteran is doing this event “as a favour to a friend who has been helping him out.” He speaks to a variety of groups other than ForAmerica, a representative for O’Neil said. But the spokesman refused to elaborate on this any further.

The facility offers picturesque views of the Snake River, and is on the southern tip of the Grand Teton National Park where a room can cost over 1,000 US dollars per night. It is being billed as “a historic weekend honoring Navy SEAL hero Robert O’Neill.” It will include shooting at a gun range run by the Jackson Hole Shooting Experience, a private company nearby. “Our event will consist of clay, pistol and ‘machine gun fun’ competitions with Rob O’Neill,” documents for the fundraiser clearly state.

O’Neill had left the military after being credited with several combat warfare missions including the bin Laden one. Later he became the co-founder of a non-profit organisation named Your Grateful Nation that assists the support of U.S. combat veterans and their families during and after their transition from the military to civilian life. The ForAmerica group was formed in the year 2009 and received a cool 4.9 million U.S. dollars as contributions in 2012, and 2.5 million US dollars in 2013.
