Patron Recommendation

Don Henderson gave the book Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heros of Seal Team 10 by Marcus Luttrell with Patrick Robinson a raving review. It is available for checkout in our New Classified section.

This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, fire team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history. His teammates fought valiantly beside him until he was the only one left alive, blasted by an RPG into a place where his pursuers could not find him. Over the next four days, terribly injured and presumed dead, Luttrell crawled for miles through the mountains and was taken in by sympathetic villagers who risked their lives to keep him safe from surrounding Taliban warriors.
