One of the key Navy Seals who killed Bin Laden is said to be the son of Mexican immigrants.
The Daily News reported that the family of a Navy Seal officer were distraught when officers carrying an American flag arrived at their doorstep on Monday.
They burst into tears fearing he had been killed.
Instead the officers said they were there to celebrate their son who they said was a hero of the Bin Laden raid.
"It was one of the biggest scares" said his father, a machine operator.
"When they saw us begin to cry they clarified that bringing the flag was an expression of honor because our son had carried out a great mission for our nation."
