‘LONE SURVIVOR’: FORMER NAVY SEAL MARCUS LUTTRELL’S INCREDIBLE STORY OF SURVIVAL LIKE YOU’VE NEVER HEARD IT BEFORE
Aug. 7, 2013
To hear Marcus Luttrell tell his unbelievable story of survival — in his own words — is nothing short of life-changing. The tale when relayed by words written in ink on paper, while still incredible, pales in comparison to personally hearing the story from the man who was actually there, who actually lived it.
Yet the former Navy SEAL, who has given everything but his life in service of his country, will still try to convince you he is no hero.
After hearing his story live, though, it’s hard to agree.
Below, we give you an inside look at Luttrell’s nationwide “Patriot Tour” and the opportunity to hear one of the most amazing true stories as told in the words of its author for the very first time. Each relevant section is followed by audio captured by TheBlaze of Luttrell giving his first-hand account at the Majestic Theater in Dallas, Texas, on Aug. 3, 2013.
Speaking to a mesmerized audience in Dallas, Texas, on Saturday, Luttrell — in vivid detail — relived the hell he experienced during Operation Redwing, a now-infamous 2005 special-ops mission conducted near the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border. Four U.S. Navy SEALs set out on the mission, but only one of them made it out alive.
The SEAL team was tasked with monitoring the movements of an Al Qaeda leader believed to be close with Osama bin Laden. Their mission, Luttrell explained during his nationwide “Patriot Tour,” was compromised. What ensued was one of the most intense firefights in the history of the Navy SEALs.
