The Navy officer in charge of the elite unit told his troops Monday that they should be proud but keep quiet about it. In an email message obtained by The Associated Press, Rear Adm. Ed Winters also says the fight is not over, and sharing too many details can endanger the next operation.

A unit of specially trained SEALS known as SEAL Team 6 stormed a secret compound in Pakistan overnight. The operation involved a small number of U.S. forces and lasted about 40 minutes.

U.S. officials say the SEALs left with bin Laden's body and unspecified evidence gathered at the scene.
