“Act Like Men, Be strong...”
A magnificent sense of the heroic...
Gun Shots and Rockets
cracked the calm air,
Fallen comrades, casualties of war
wounded soldiers left to themselves
Desperate cries for help,
don’t let my wounded friend die,
A Code of Conduct
in place of a wound of the heart
Victims of the wrongs of others
Complications, bad judgment, denial
Conspiracy, enemy of our souls
Finally, rescue and recovery
Remember the mercy we desperately need.
Will You Lay your life for me?
Though I walk through the Valley of Death,
I fear no evil...
-------In Honor and Memory Of---------
In June 2005, four U.S. Navy SEALs left their base in Afghanistan headed towards Pakistani border. Their mission was to capture or kill a notorious al Qaeda leader. Less then twenty-four hours later, only one of those Navy SEALs remained alive.
This is a true story of how team leader Marcus Luttrell, the sole survivor of Operation Redwing, and the desperate battle that led to the largest loss of life in Navy SEAL history. More than anything this is the story of how his teammates stood beside him until he was the last one left; blasted unconscious by a rocket grenade, blown over a cliff, but still armed and breathing.
Over the next four days, badly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell fought off six al Qaeda assassins who were sent to finish him, then crawled for seven miles through the mountains before he was taken in by a Pashtun tribe, who risked everything to protect him from the Taliban.
In this moving chronicle of courage Marcus Luttrell delivers one of the most powerful narratives ever written about modern warfare-as a tribute to his teammates, who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
