A Salute To Freedom With Marcus Luttrell

Event Starts
Saturday, May 27 2023 @ 2:00 pm


Marcus Luttrell is well-known for being the lone survivor of Operation Red Wing, an attempt to capture or kill Taliban leader Ahmad Shah. Hear Marcus tell his traumatic experience of walking and crawling seven miles to safety with a bullet wound in one leg, shrapnel embedded in both legs, and three cracked vertebrae. Luttrell’s eyewitness account of his companions’ resilience while under attack is both inspiring and heart-wrenching.

An author, father, and former Navy SEAL – come and listen as Marcus Luttrell brings his story and the story of his comrades to life. Plus, hear a bonus feature from Marcus’ wife Melanie as she recounts how Marcus’ story has affected her own.


After traumatically losing his leg, Chad Fleming chose to deploy five times into combat as an amputee. Now a retired U.S. Army Captain, Fleming holds claim to three Purple Hearts, the Meritorious Service Medal, and two Bronze Star Medals with Valor. Today, Chad focuses on promoting veterans’ success after service. A hero even after retiring from active duty, Fleming provides resources that help veterans reintegrate into civilian life while maintaining emotional, mental, and physical health.

Chad will inspire you as he retells his own encounters against the seemingly impossible and his determination to never quit.
