(Scroll down for video) Several U.S. Navy SEALs were punished for working on a video game, according to reports.

The U.S. Navy SEALs are part of an elite force that operates in the shadows, best known for killing Osama bin Laden. However, a group of SEALs has been disciplined for revealing secrets.

The seven members of SEAL Team Six are still in active service. One of them was in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. SEAL Team Six became a household name after the Bin Laden killing. For two days this spring and summer, the team worked as paid consultants in a recently released video game called "Medal of Honor: Warfighter."

Four other team members, who have since transferred out from the unit, are still in active service
elsewhere and are under investigation.

The game does not recreate the bin Laden raid, but portray realistic missions, such as an attack on the hideout of pirates in Somalia. It was produced by Electronic Arts, which said that the game is life like, as it was recreated by both active duty and retired members of the military, to help make their games as realistic as possible.

The seven who have been punished so far, all received letters of reprimand that kill their chances of promotion. They also had half of their salary for two months removed.
