Freedom Fighters: Marcus Luttrell

Posted: Updated:

East Texan Marcus Luttrell never dreamed his story of survival would become a best selling book and a smash motion picture. But he had dreamed of becoming a Navy Seal since he was a kid.  

In 1999 he joined the Navy and began Seal training. 

On June 28, 2005, Luttrell and three other Seals from Seal Team 10 were assigned to a mission called "Operation Redwing," to capture or kill a top Taliban leader in Afghanistan.

Luttrell was the lone survivor of the mission.  His book "Lone Survivor" and the movie tell what happened on that ill-fated mission.
