A Salute To Freedom With Marcus Luttrell
OPERATION RED WING SURVIVOR MARCUS LUTTRELL
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.
DECORATED WAR HERO CHAD FLEMING

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.
