Former Navy SEAL grew up in a village near Bethel, excelled at paintball

It’s not everyday that a person from a tiny remote village in Alaska gets national attention. But that’s what’s happening to Matt Bissonnette, a former Navy Seal who has penned a book titled “No Easy Day”, about killing Osama Bin Laden.

Writing under the pseudonym Matt Owen, a lot of media says Bissonnette hails from Wrangell. But as KYUK’s Angela Denning-Barnes reports from Bethel, Bissonnette grew up in a small Western Alaska village, where residents remember him fondly.
