The UP Experience is pleased to welcome Marcus Luttrell, author of the #1 New York Times best-selling book Lone Survivor, and decorated Navy SEAL who journeyed with three others into the mountainous border of Afghanistan and Pakistan on Operation Redwing. Marcus Luttrell joined the U.S. Navy in March 1999 and became a combat-trained SEAL in January 2002. After serving in Iraq for two years, he was deployed to Afghanistan in the spring of 2005. As a SEAL, Luttrell was trained in weapons, demolition, and unarmed combat. He also served as platoon medic.
During his UP presentation – "Perseverance Under Adversity" – Marcus will reveal his own harrowing experiences as a combat-trained Navy SEAL. He was awarded the Navy Cross for combat heroism in 2006 by President George W. Bush. In his new best-selling book, Service: A Navy SEAL at War, he turns his focus from his own experiences to the nature of service on America’s battlefields and the soldiers who give their lives to defend their country and each other. To honor his lost comrades from Operation Redwing, Luttrell established the Lone Survivor Foundation in 2010, dedicated to honoring and remembering American warriors by providing unique educational, rehabilitation, recovery, and wellness opportunities to U.S. Armed Forces service members and families.
