In 2017, Navy SEAL Chief Eddie Gallagher was charged with seven counts related to the stabbing of an ISIS soldier, and then posing with the soldier’s body in a picture. A San Diego jury found him not guilty of six of those charges. The remaining charge, which he was convicted of, landed him a sentence of a reduced rank. Gallagher was demoted from Chief to Petty Officer First Class and his monthly pay reduced $2,697 for four months. The judge then modified this sentence to only a two-month pay cut and gave Gallagher a total of 261 days’ credit for pretrial confinement, harsh pretrial conditions, and his deprivation from receiving treatment for a traumatic brain injury.
