On 2 May 2011, Navy SEALs arrived via helicopter at a remote district in Pakistan. After a short and intense firefight, Osama bin Laden was dead. Later that day, he was buried at sea from the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70). Bin Laden defined the back story for my generation of officers, and parts of his legacy will be important for us to remember. Others we would do well to bury with him.
