ORANGE COUNTY, N.Y. – Orange County Executive Steve Neuhaus had what he called one of the honors of his lifetime on Tuesday when he met with Navy SEAL Robert O'Neill, the man who killed Osama Bin Laden.
O'Neill was the keynote speaker at the ShopRite's Annual Golf Outing Recognizing Veterans.
The meeting was even more special for Neuhaus, who serves as a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy Reserves and is currently assigned to a Naval Special Warfare Group.
Neuhaus has served overseas in Africa and spent time serving in South Korea earlier this year. He also worked in Tower Two of the World Trade Center sixteen years ago.
"Meeting the guy who was responsible for the death of Bin Laden, one of the world's biggest villians, was quite an honor," Neuhaus told Daily Voice. "He's a very humble guy. Just an Irish kid from Montana. We're excited to have him come up."
Neuhaus is just as excited to have O'Neill come back for an event at Anthony's Pier 9 on Wednesday, Oct. 4.
O'Neill will discuss his book "The Operator: Firing the Shots that Killed Osama Bin Laden.
The fundraising event includes a VIP book signing at 5 p.m. followed by a cocktail hour at 6 p.m. Mr. O’Neill will begin his presentation at 7 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at www.SteveNeuhaus.com .
