Marcus Luttrell - a former Navy SEAL and author of the best-selling book “Lone Survivor,” which was adapted into a hit movie starting Mark Wahlberg - wrote an epic Facebook post on Wednesday, outlining just what he will do when his little girl grows up and begins to date.
Petty Officer First Class Marcus Luttrell was born in Huntsville, Texas in 1975. Luttrell and three teammates from SEAL Team TEN were assigned to a reconnaissance mission, operation RED WING, in the Hindu-Kush mountain region of Afghanistan. Their objective was to gather intelligence on Taliban movement in the area. Luttrell’s team was eventually discovered and outnumbered by over 200 Taliban fighters. Petty Officer Luttrell was the only to survive enemy contact.
