The Navy SEAL who says he put three bullets in the head of Usama bin Laden is out of work and bitter that he was never told he is still eligible for health care coverage, according to a new report.

The hero frogman is bitter as he waits for disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs, according to an exclusive story for Esquire by the Center for Investigative Reporting. After quitting just three years short of retirement, he has no health care or pension, he said.

"I left SEALs on Friday," the unnamed SEAL told author Phil Bronstein last September. "My health care for me and my family stopped at midnight Friday night.

"I asked if there was some transition from my Tricare to Blue Cross Blue Shield. They said no," the SEAL told Bronstein, executive chairman of the Center for Investigative Reporting. "You're out of the service, your coverage is over. Thanks for your sixteen years. Go f--- yourself."
