Don’t Miss the True Story of a True Hero – the Lone Survivor

A few weeks ago we ran a quick story about actor Mark Wahlberg defending our military heroes at a question and answer session for his upcoming movie Lone Survivor. I can tell you that I am stupid excited about the release of this movie, which comes out on January 10, 2014. The movie is based on the book by real life hero and former Navy SEAL, Marcus Luttrell. It recounts the harrowing and doomed tale of Operation Redwing and their excursion into the mountains of Afghanistan.

This past Sunday, 60 Minutes ran a special report on the former SEAL and paid exceptional attention to a connection he made while fighting for his life in Afghanistan.



If you haven’t yet seen the trailer for the soon to be released Lone Survivor, here it is.
