Job W. Price: Say a Prayer for the Late Navy SEAL Commander’s Family

By Debbie Schlussel


I’ve said before on this site that I think suicide is the most selfish act a person can commit, especially someone with a family. Loved ones will always blame themselves and it’s an irreversible final act that only hurts them, while the perpetrator isn’t around to face the forever tragedy that he or she caused. That said, I can’t second guess the tragic behavior of American soldiers at war in Afghanistan, where we never should have gone because, as in Vietnam, we had no intention of fighting a war and, instead, put our men out there as open meat for the Muslim jackals while they built stupid roads and handed out candy to those who hate us. And so it goes with Navy SEAL Team Four Commander Job W. Price, who apparently committed suicide in Afghanistan, yesterday (Saturday). We have no idea the kinds of things he saw over there, and I can’t help but not the irony of his first name and the many tragedies that struck his Biblical namesake.


Say a Prayer for His Family: Navy SEAL Commander Job W. Price, Rest In Peace

Say a prayer for his family, especially the wife he left a widow and the daughter he left without a father. I cannot even imagine what that must be like, especially right before Christmas. Why would someone take his life and leave his family bereft, especially at the holiday season, if at all? I’m sure they are asking the same question in their grief.

What was going on in Afghanistan that led to this? The same stuff that caused another American soldier to go nuts and engage in a massacre. All of these people have watched their close friends get murdered by Muslim savages who gladly take American money and resources and then shed American blood.

Why the heck are we still there? Let there be no more families who have to endure the agony of what the family of Commander Price’s family is going through at this moment and will remember every year at this time. They will never have pleasant holidays.

Let’s get the hell out of there and let Hamid Karzai and his fellow corruptocrat Muslims fight it out for themselves. Bring our boys home!

*** UPDATE: Many of my Facebook fans (join my FB fanpage by “Liking” here) don’t believe that this Navy SEAL with a family would commit suicide. They think something else happened. One FB fan, Michael Allen:

I don’t believe anything from the government. So strange that under Obama 25 U S Navy SEALS have died!

Hmmm . . . . For the record, I don’t believe there’s any conspiracy here, but it’s an interesting point he raises. What do you think?

Pretty sure the Taliban echo the same sentiment….

    Because our regime is so corrupt, I am very suspicious all around.

    We know of the incompetence at the top ripples down…

    As goes, so goes... on December 24, 2012 at 11:08 am

    I don’t believe for one minute that this man committed suicide. Too many of the Seals (team 4 and team 6) who took part in the Osama bin Laden raid have died. Additionally, there are other rumors (check out Hillary Clinton–[plane crash) as to his activities before his death. As for Afghanistan, I have a son there now, and I hate this war. We are equipping and training men who will use those weapons against our soldiers now and our allies later.

    kaitlinc on January 2, 2013 at 7:32 pm

One clarification….they echo the sentiment on getting the US out of there.

George A. on December 23, 2012 at 9:45 pm

George A-Hole is back. Just pointing out he’s a Liberal dope & wuss.

Amen! I am really gonna think about this so my “thoughts & prayers” are not empty lip-service.

I think your Facebook fan may be on to something. I would not dismiss the query he proffered. Another thing I will think about.

Get us out of Afghanistan!

And I want to remind EVERYONE that since Obama-Putin took office in 2009 there have been NO mass anti-war rallies. We know why but for the low-info droolers that means Liberals are only bothered by wars in a REPUBLICAN administration. They are NOT consistent. And everyone should be able to see through them.

All those anti-war Libs have no clue how this administration sent troops into Uganda and they certainly don’t have a clue about how we are aiding and abetting the Moooooooslim Brotherhood in Syria with arm and $$$.

The real stink of Liberalism is out there. Many just refuse to see or smell it.

Let’s see. Take a bunch of our young men and women. Put them in a war thousands of miles from home. After winning major victories, have a crook installed as President of that country, who condemns American soldiers while relying on them. Have his brother make money off the very enemy American troops are fighting.

Next, install a President whose sympathies lie with the enemy, and who is afraid of hurting the enemy’s feelings. Tell the American soldiers they are there to win the hearts and minds of the enemy, and then tell them that they cannot use their best tactics to kill the enemy. If an enemy drops his gun and runs, you can’t pursue him. You cannot have drones protecting American soldiers. You cannot have your picture taken with the dead bodies of the enemy who just killed your best friend. You cannot be upset when your so-called allies, the people you are defending, you are defending start killing off the American troops. To add insult to injury your military superiors blame the Ameerican army when the army you are training and paying for turns their guns on you and your friends.

Add to that the number of rotations of troops, the number of times you have been called to combat because there are not enough soldiers and there is no draft, and add to that the many, many months you have been away from home, year after year, after year, placed in a G-d forsaken primitive place with limited recreation, and a limited diet thanks to limitations demanded by the President’s wife.

And no one really thanks you for your service, your wounds, your concussions.

In that light Deb, suicide is not selfish. It is a release.

JEG: Agreed. That’s why I wrote that I can’t second guess his behavior in this situation. DS

Jonathan E. Grant on December 23, 2012 at 10:12 pm

    Jonathan E. Grant – “In that light Deb, suicide is not selfish. It is a release.”

    Debbie – “Agreed. That’s why I wrote that I can’t second guess his behavior in this situation.”

    I cannot possibly know what it was like to be in his situation. Nonetheless I vehemently disagree with both of you. Suicide is one of the most selfish things, if not the most selfish thing, anyone can do. Judaism (and I believe other religions including Catholicism) spares no wrath and provides no forgiveness against those who commit suicide no matter what the justification. There is a reason for that.

    I_AM_ME on December 24, 2012 at 8:15 am

      Could be, he “was suicided”, . . . I’ve heard of that, . . .

      PhillipGaley on December 24, 2012 at 11:55 am

    Have to say I agree with you, Jonathan. I thought all along that we should have gone into Afghanistan, bombed the crap out of them and left them to live in/repair the third world hellhole that spawned and protected the 9/11 attackers. We have no business being in the “nation-building” business. Why should we rebuild a country for people who hate us and will just come back and attack us again in the future?

    DG in GA on December 26, 2012 at 2:00 pm

sorry deb

sometimes there is no other way out

not that i endorse it

is there a way to get
moose lamb pigs
to do this
anytime time they feel
conflicted by
western civilization

even tho they demand
welfare money

are such phonies-leaches
and we put up with them


because democrats exist ?

prestigio on December 23, 2012 at 10:15 pm

Does anyone have the details of his death? I, too, have a hard time believing that some one of that caliber would commit suicide. Unless it was a cut and dry situation, it bears looking into.

Gloria Stewart on December 23, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    I agree. There is something very fishy here. We know for a fact that our CIA as well as other government agencies employ hired assassins to carryout black ops as well as false flag operations. Did this Seal know too much? Was he going to blow the whistle on something big? Remember Vince Foster and the details of his death? He was also supposed to have shot himself despite all the evidence to the contrary. Unfortunately we live in a country where the government deals more in lies than in the truth.

    Jerry G on December 24, 2012 at 9:30 am

I agree with Michael Allen. My very first thought was “another SEAL? Nope, not suicide.”

Italkit on December 24, 2012 at 2:16 am

I think it’s way too early to say this was definitely a suicide. Being retired Navy, I am also not going to easily believe that this Navy SEAL would commit suicide. I want definite proof. There needs to be an IMPARTIAL investigation by people that have nothing to do with the Obama Administration or the D.O.D.

Karen B. on December 24, 2012 at 4:01 am

It is sad news but I would take it with a grain of salt. I cannot accept any news from government sources as trustworthy. We should give this man the benefit of a doubt until proven otherwise.

Raymond of Canada on December 24, 2012 at 8:07 am

Prayers go out to this brave man’s family and loved ones from my family. Let’s try to get to the truth of wht happened here. What the state run media reports must always be suspect since they are only parroting the party line. Let’s also dig, dig, dig and learn the truth about the murders in Benghazi – and while we’re at it, the truth about the death of bin laden and the oh-so-quick “Burial at sea.” With the untrustworthy government/media complex getting stronger and propagandize the sheeple day in and day out, we must dig ourselves. There is a disease infecting the majority of the population today, and that disease is…….Apathy. Until a cure is found, we live in dangerous times.

herbster on December 24, 2012 at 9:33 am

We’ll likely never know what happened. But this is fact: SEALs go thru intensive screening and training to prevent things like this from happening.

Here’s a plug – for which I get NOTHING: a great book to read about Afghanistan is Jake Tapper’s The Outpost. It supports a lot of Debby’s post on WFT we are doing there. If we’re not nuking or dropping Napalm on those animals, we don’t need to be “nation building” people who don’t give a shit. The above book details this extensively.

Bob D. on December 24, 2012 at 9:41 am

I think Obama may have played a large part in any depression the navy seals may be suffering.
Shakespeare’s King Lear comes to mind but in this case the American electorate is playing the royal part.

Frankz on December 24, 2012 at 9:43 am

Until proven otherwise, I say this was no suicide.

lexi on December 24, 2012 at 11:47 am

My nephew committed suicide this past August, he was enlisted in the Navy. He shot himself on the ship while out to sea, while on his shift. My prayers go out to the family of the Navy Seal. Here is what my brother, sister in law, and our family know for sure. He loved the Navy and had been enlisted for four years. He was promoted many times. He was on a very long deployment which was to end in September. Why would he take his life just one month from coming home? He had not been home since prior to Thanksgiving in 2011. We were looking forward to his return and had plans for many family gatherings. He was smart as a whip and was 24 years of age.

He wrote often and called when he could. As a family we thought for sure there was a mistake. A conflict perhaps, cleaning his gun, a drunken binge that went bad? The Navy is doing an investigation, but my brother viewed the body of his son. He did indeed shoot himself, there is no getting around it. We have no note, we have no explanation, we have no clues. His friends on the ship are as heartsick and in the dark as the rest of us. His commanders are still in shock to this day. He was happy, a true team player, and he was counted on. There is absolutely no explanation that anyone of us have, none at all. His character and he was would never suggest suicide.

I pray for the family, and realize that sometimes we will never get the answers we seek. The answer to why will not come for our family, and perhaps not for theirs.

sharon on December 24, 2012 at 12:57 pm

I strongly suspect this was arranged. If the body is not allowed to be seen by an independent forensic pathologist that will be a huge red flag. I hope Glen Beck or Col. David Hunt is able to get the inside information on the Commander’s death.

Gizzy on December 24, 2012 at 1:30 pm

There is an old Native American saying, “Great Spirit, let me not criticize my neighbor until I have walked a mile in his moccasins.” Without many more facts, we can never know whether or why this Navy Commander killed himself. We should thank G-d for every day we have our loved ones, our health (mental and physical) and our freedom. None of these will last forever.

May this SEAL enjoy G-d’s mercy, and may his family and friends find peace through faith. We owe him our gratitude for his service to our nation, and respectful silence about his possible motives.

Pete on December 24, 2012 at 1:43 pm

As a retired Navy man I do not believe for one stinking minute that these Navy SEAL committed suicide. As with all Special Forces it takes a different caliber of man to become a SEAL. Not only do these guys go through intensive physical training but they are subject to strenuous mental training also. This is how they weed out the noncandidates. That and they do extensive background checks on the sailors form day one. We know how the Obamanation has treated these fine gentlemen and other forces in our military. Praising them one on hand while hamstringing them with stupid rules of engagement with the other. And like Debbie said isn’t it funny that so many of these guys have died under Odummer’s watch as CIC?

Ken b on December 24, 2012 at 2:01 pm

    Right on, Ken! That is what popped into my mind immediately. This does not conform with my limited knowledge of the caliber of these “fine gentlemen”, as you stated.
    As a long shot guess, could it be a untreated deep clinical depression? I have heard that such sufferers can be quite normal appearing to even close ones.

    Rochelle on December 24, 2012 at 2:29 pm

America’s foreign policy hs been in shambles for over a decade now. Why??????? Then we had Ms Clinton who will go down the histroy as the worst Secretary of state this country ever had. I just pray that his follower will not be just as bad.What a shame, the leader of the world is now a lacky of Arab rulers.

martin on December 24, 2012 at 3:25 pm

I’m not insinuating this was the reason for him taking his life but someone has already said, “no one has any idea what he saw over there”. An assumption has already been made – this being a contributing factor.

I’m also not insinuating this to be the case in this situation so dont’ crusify me but using this as an example, “some wives at home don’t behave well when husbands go over seas”.

Sometimes it’s what is going on at home which contributes to one making horrible decisions.

There are so many possible factors….

mnhcp on December 24, 2012 at 4:56 pm

    Mnhcp, it makes sense that something may have been going on back home. You cannot pack-up and come home to address those issues. The loss of control over those issues can be overwhelming.

    Visteo on December 24, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Let’s simply hold them all in our hearts (him, his family, all of our military personnel, the families of the dead children in CT) and let all judgment go. Until we’ve been put in the position of taking our own lives, we simply can’t/don’t know. Take heart and be grateful that most of us aren’t eating at that bitter table at the moment. Blessings on all …

Pray Hard on December 24, 2012 at 6:25 pm

First off, you know nothing about suicide and mental illness. Suicide, for the most part, has nothing to do with being selfish. When you’re not in the right frame of mind you’re not thinking rationally. Believe me, I lost a good friend to suicide who was bipolar. You really don’t know what you’re talking about, so stop shaming those who tragically die this way. You’re making things worse for their families and friends. Also, as someone who also knew Job, thanks for your prayers, but please know that a devastated town is mourning one of our favorite sons, so please keep that in mind before you make an insensitive comment.

Thank you.

Thank you.

TK on December 25, 2012 at 11:25 pm

Don’t know about Cmdr. Price. However, a large number of the Seals who assassinated Osama bin Laden had their helicopter shot down a month later. The thought that it wasn’t exactly a coincidence crossed my mind.

The Benghazi attack also seems strange. Why would the State Dept. ignore pleas for help? I know you didn’t like the guy in charge there, but the thought occurred to me that the State Dept. might have wanted him dead. LIB or not, he knew too much.

Remember, this is the same State Dept. that for decades covered up Yasser Arafat’s complacency in the murder of Ambassador Cleo Noel and Charge D’Affairs George Moore.

We are being continually lied to by our government and news media. There’s no sense in believing anything they say until time has passed and other facts surface.

There is NO Santa Claus on December 25, 2012 at 11:39 pm

Having known many S.E.A.L.’s during my time in service I find that one committing suicide to be highly unlikely. These spec ops go through training and are observed for just such defects. Why?? Because of missions in the field that might effect them while the mission must be accomplished. I mourn his passing but, I dont think it was suicide.

Jonathan Gartner on December 26, 2012 at 12:24 pm

sharon, I am so sorry for your loss, my heart goes out. My father committed suicide 3 years ago. I_am_me, I have to disagree and it hurts those left here to hear others say that is the unforgivable sin. My father was mentally unstable, a child of God, and yet he took his own life. Unable to find peace, I saw a medium a year later and he came through and he was in heaven. No one can say for sure what happens after we leave the physical realm, so please don’t hurt others by saying this. It is a wound that never heals and it makes it worse for others to say hurtful things.

CJ on December 26, 2012 at 6:42 pm

TK, I totally agree, and am very sorry for your loss. He was a hero and I feel sure is in the arms of God right now. No greater love hath a man than to lay down his life for another and I am sure in his lifetime of service he was willing to do so many times. The Lord is merciful and knows all. Bless you and his dear loved ones left behind.

CJ on December 26, 2012 at 7:05 pm

    CJ and Sharon. Thank you for sharing your stories. No death is more devastating than suicide for the families and friends of the loved one who has died. We search and try to find answers that sometimes just aren’t there. Though the pain dissipates with time, you never get over it. I hope you and your families have found peace. It seems the best thing you can do is help others who are going through the same pain now … which is what I’m trying to do with Job. If you want to know who Job really was and how those of us in Pottstown remember him, read this piece:

    Thank you and God bless.

    TK on December 27, 2012 at 8:17 am

Job Price is the son-in-law of friends of mine. It is inconceivable that this fine young man would choose any path other than continuing to serve our country and care for his family. That the Navy would insinuate it was a suicide before the investigation into his death was complete is a travesty. The family was already grieving and now they have to deal with this?
At least Job is with Our Lord and will never be in harm’s way again.

Waincroft on December 29, 2012 at 10:33 am

Why was he liquidated?

John Tokalenko on December 29, 2012 at 6:08 pm

There is another story… and it makes more sense.

Chuck Tinker on December 31, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    Yay Chuck! I was about to link the same. Clinton being out for 3 weeks matches the flight logs. I hope there is a way to help the family he left behind, especially with the abhorrent report being presented. This man died protecting our Secretary of State and should be honored.

    maude on December 31, 2012 at 10:39 pm

This was a noble, family man and a Navy Seal. By killing himself, he dishonors his Navy and his family and looses benefits for them. If he had wanted to die, he could easily made it happen in Afghanistan and died a hero. So I can’t believe it either.

Add the fact all the lies the government has told us before like the death of Pat Tillman, Benghazi victims, and the case of Jessica Lynch. Why should we believe them? I wish peace for his family and that they get the benefits they deserve.

Georgann Wampler on January 3, 2013 at 11:07 am

I knew Job Price very well from our time in Iraq in late 2009-early 2010. Outstanding man and SEAL. Very high moral character with unquestionable and immpecable integrity. I’m positive he is/was not capable of suicide and this is highly suspicious. As an O-5 Navy Commander and I assume the XO or CO of ST-4, and like most second or third plus tour Officers, he was not highly operational. SEALs are not the kind of guys who do this to themselves. It’s just not in their dna. My sincere condolences to his family and friends. I suspect there is much more to this story.
