Two Dates and a Dash Podcast Episode 61: "Unanswered Questions" - The Life and Death of Cmdr. Job Price, Commander SEAL Team 4

Episode Summary

Commander Job Wilson Price was a graduate of Pottstown High School where he played football and wrestled - taking great pride in his school. Job was an excellent student and was accepted to many prestigious universities, including Yale, but Job wanted to give back through service to his country and made the decision to go to the United States Air Force Academy, cross commissioning into the United States Navy SEALS after he graduated. One of the many things that made my brother exceptional was that he was not only a Navy SEAL, but also a United States Army Ranger. During his 20-year career Job served a total of 13 deployments to places such as Central and South America, Kosovo, the Middle-East (specifically Iraq and Afghanistan), and Africa, as well as many places we probably don’t know about. Job was assigned to SEAL Teams Two and Four, U.S Special Operations Command (SOCOM) and Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). Job received numerous medals including four Bronze Stars yet he was never one to speak of it. My brother lost his life on December 22 2012 in Tarin Kowt, Afghanistan while serving as the Commander of SEAL Team Four. Job always wanted to belong to the best and be a part of something far greater than oneself. To his credit, he achieved those goals. Job's death was "officially" ruled a suicide, however after further investigation in the 7 years since his death, there are more questions than answers as it relates to the nature of his death and how it was handled by the Navy. In the years since his death in 2012, there have been numerous confirmed reports of systemic corruption and criminality within the SEAL community. This podcast was designed to bring to light Job's amazing life, his service to our great nation and the serious concern over the validity of the "official cause of death" and how the US Navy handled it. The vast majority of all the heroic men and women who serve our great nation are worthy of the praise and recognition they deserve. However, it appears as if a small segment of the US Navy SEAL community is bringing a negative light onto an otherwise prideful community of dedicated war-fighters. We honor those who served honorably and only wish to expose those who did not.
