Operation Red Wings (often incorrectly referred to as Operation Redwing and/or Operation Red Wing) was a combined / joint military operation that took place in the Pech District of Afghanistan's Kunar Province, on the slopes of a mountain named Sawtalo Sar, approximately 20 miles west of Kunar's provincial capital of Asadabad, in Late June through Mid-July 2005. The goal of Operation Red Wings was the disruption of Anti-Coalition Militia (ACM) activity in the region in order to further aid the stabilization efforts of the region for the upcoming September 18, 2005 Afghan National Parliamentary Elections.

Blurvew: 'Lone Survivor' is a 2013 American war film based upon the 2007 namesake nonfiction book by Marcus Luttrell and Patrick Robinson; a dramatisation of the Operation Red Wings. It is a movie that kind of spoils its own plot with the title. It is essentially a routine war film, in that at the start it establishes basic attributes of the characters that take central roles in the story, then some scenes with male bonding (which have homoerotic undertones), then the planning of the "main event," and then the execution follows after, until the complication ruins the plan. I'm loathed to say that the "Based on a True Story" is cliché, but I suppose even reality can (and frequently is) subject to repetition. Prior to the film proper, a series of file footage of some of the Navy Seal training is displayed in a manner that lacks any other viable description than a montage. This montage contains some of the fundamental and strange, yet evidently effective, exercises that a recruit must undertake. It kind of ...
Lone Survivor was one of the best movies i think i have ever seen, RIP to all the men who lost their lives during operation Red Wings. I have never cried that much in my life.
What a film. To the brave souls of Operation Red Wings I salute you. . RIP

Bravery, honour and heroism are never dead! Go watch the Lone Survivor, a film based on true-to-life events by the US Navy Seals Operation Red Wings. It would tear your heart apart to see the soldiers dying for what is good and right. You would loosen your grip with hope and drop a painful tear as you see them struggle holding on to their last breath. Their blood would stain those treacherous soil in that mountain in Afghanistan where the Taliban rules. Then, you will be caught by surprise as those Taliban brothers by blood, not by spirit, who live by the principle of goodwill and humanity would help one last soldier alive - his name Marcus. Such a moving depiction of brotherhood, compassion and resilience in the midst of war against leftist ideology. I liked Black Hawk Down the first time I saw it; this one, the Lone Survivor is far better. You will like it more. Of course, who would not be swayed by the power and emotion of the film's soundtrack sung by U2? If I were you, I would not waste my time posti ...

RIP to those fallen during Operation Red Wings
In my latest Soldiers magazine story, I take a look at a little-known aspect of Operation Red Wings -- eight Night Stalkers from the The 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment who gave their lives to try to save their comrades.
WORDS TO LIVE BY ...: These are the words spoken by a true warrior: "I will never quit." Marcus Luttrell, the "Lone Survivor" of Operation Red Wings, penned that phrase as he gave a detailed account of his long battle for survival in the mountains of Afghanistan. The mental fortitude behind those four words, represents the burning commitment within every American solider, especially those who make the ultimate sacrifice in service of our great nation. For Marcus Luttrell, it was the determination that enabled him to survive a brutal battle for his life in 2005. Operation Red Wings was a covert operation designed to take out a top leader of the Taliban forces, Ahmad Shah in Afghanistan. SEAL Team 10 was assigned to the joint military mission. Just hours into the operation, the team of four US Navy Seals was ambushed by Ahmad Shah's men, surrounded on three sides. After a fierce battle and a failed evacuation attempt, nineteen of America's finest men lost their lives that day. Marcus Luttrell was the lone s ...

I cried at the end of Lone Survivors. When they showed all the members of Operation Red Wings. I don't care if you judge. …
REVIEW FROM ROLLING STONE: What to say about a war film whose outcome is evident in the title? In the case of Lone Survivor, you commend the outstanding job done by writer-director Peter Berg in telling the remarkable true story recounted by Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell in his book of the same name. In 2005, medic and sniper Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg), Lt. Michael Murphy (Taylor Kitsch), gunner's mate Danny P. Dietz (Emile Hirsch) and sonar technician Matthew "Axe" Axelson (Ben Foster) were deployed to the Afghan mountains as a surveillance team for Operation Red Wings, a mission targeting Taliban commander Ahmad Shah (Yousuf Azami) and his fighters. The movie doesn't go much beyond cliché in establishing the camaraderie among these SEALs while in training. But once on duty, Berg (Friday Night Lights, The Kingdom) proves a virtuoso at showing how action defines character. And Wahlberg, Kitsch, Hirsch and Foster add to the impact. The story changes course when the four SEALs, hidden on the mountain slopes, ar ...
Perhaps one of the best war movies that I would rate 'Lone Survivor'! Its an astonishing display of humanity & brotherhood. Technically its not a full fledged war movie with war being the subject of the matter. Its based on biography of Marcus Luttrell who was part of the ill-fated mission Operation Red Wings where he was the Lone Survivor and evader of a massive onslaught by Taliban. It shows that how he was being supported and helped out for extraction within the enemy zone by a village of Afghans who did not support Taliban, the amazing display of commitment and camaraderie to protect by the Afghani tribe is beyond words. Superbly edited, out of the world sound effects and editing and excellent aerial cinematography sets the movie apart. Somewhere I feel its bound to leave a deep mark in your heart if not it makes you cry, in the end.
“Blockbuster FRIDAY” This week 2nd Hollywood flick Lone Survivor IDIL Rating: * * * * Stars Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Ben Foster, Emile Hirsch, Taylor Kitsch, Eric Bana, Alexander Ludwig Direction: Peter Berg Genre: Action Duration: 2 hours 1 minute Story: Based on former SEAL Marcus Luttrell's memoirs, this is the story of four US Navy Seals who are left stranded in the Hindu Kush mountains when their communications are cut off. When surrounded by the Taliban, they face a fight for survival. Review: As the show begins, we are given a glimpse of the brutal training that US Navy Seals go through before they become trained killing machines. It is fittingly portentous because of what this particular team of soldiers will go through during the course of their battle. As part of Operation Red Wings, Marcus Luttrell (Wahlberg), Michael Murphy (Kitsch), Matthew 'Axe' Axelson (Foster) and Danny Dietz (Hirsch) set out on a mission in a remote part of Afghanistan to eliminate Taliban leader Ahmad Shah. After reachin ...
I salute you Petty Officer First Class Marcus Luttrell for sharing your story of Operation Red Wings aka Lone Survivor. You and the fallen SEAL team 10 are true American heros.
Lone Survivor provides a look into the intensely emotional story of Marcus Luttrell, a Navy Seal and his experience in Afghanistan as a part of Operation Red Wings. I enjoyed every minute of this movie and I have never cried this much in a movie ever in my entire life. Go see it. It's amazing.
I salute Marcus Luttrell in surviving his ordeal and welcome him back to us, but I'm sure Marcus will not want us to forget those who didn't survive. Along with Marcus's three brothers in Operation Red Wings, Lieutenant Mike Murphy, PO2 Matthew Axelson and PO2 Danny Dietz there were 15 others who did not survive Operation Red Wings, the Nightstalkers of Turbine 33 and the Seals on Turbine 33.

Marcus Luttrell is a *** fined example of a patriot, and an even better example of reasons to continue forwards. This man can be admired by all for his actions during Operation Red Wings, as well as his continued actions here stateside. Thank you Mr. Luttrel. -SPECTRE
Movie Review: "Lone Survivor" (2013)(*** out of 5) - Lone Survivor is the harrowing true story of Operation Red Wings, which took place in 2005 during the War in Afghanistan. The goal of this mission was to capture and eliminate a notorious Taliban leader named Ahmed Shah. SEAL Team 10 is sent in to complete the task on June 28. SEAL Team 10 consists of four troops: Lieutenant Michael Murphy, Petty Officer Second Class Danny Dietz, Petty Officer Second Class Matthew Axelson, and Hospital Corpsman Second Class Marcus Luttrell. During one morning in their pre-determined overwatch positions, the squad must face a tough decision as a group of local goat herders stumble upon their scouting location: do they release the locals and abort the mission, but risk being compromised by local Taliban? Or do they execute the locals and continue with the mission, but ultimately disobey their original orders? Their final decision becomes a costly one as the outcome leads to an unexpected turn of events that leaves the squ ...

Saw "Lone Survivor" this weekend. Much in the same genre as "Blackhawk Down". It brings to mind the George Orwell quote: "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf." Good flick & Mark Wahlberg does a very good job portraying the only SEAL to survive Operation Red Wings.
The Lone Survivor’s story BY MICHAEL SMERCONISH “What to do with the goat herders?” That’s the moral and ethical question that lingered long after readers closed the cover on Marcus Luttrell’s 2007 best-seller, Lone Survivor. The movie version of the book, starring Mark Wahlberg, is drawing large crowds nationwide. Like the book, which was co-authored by Patrick Robinson, the Peter Berg-directed movie describes the events of June 28, 2005, during Operation Red Wings. Luttrell and three other Navy Seals were dropped into the mountains of the Hindu Kush to surveil Taliban leader Ahmad Shah. Soon after their arrival, the mission was compromised by three goat herders who unwittingly discovered the Americans hiding in broad daylight along the Afghan-Pakistan border. The SEALs’ dilemma over what to do with the goat herders has enlivened book clubs and sparked barroom debates: Tie them up and leave them, kill them, or let them go and run the risk that they will further compromise the mission? Sadly, ...

Marcus Luttrell (Lone Survivor), Lt. Michael Murphy, Matthew Axelson, and Danny Dietz are badass. Four selfless warriors fought *** hard for our country during Operation Red Wings, in attempt to defeat Ahmed Shah.
Lone Survivor was amazing. Michael Murphy is a true hero. Respect giving to all the men of Operation Red Wings.
Lone Survivor was a great movie. Wow. Major props to and especially the Seals in Operation Red Wings
You need to go see Lone Survivor in Theaters. These men Emil Hirsch, Mark Wahlberg, Ben Foster, and Taylor Kitsch deliver with pride and honor to those Navy Seals like Danny Dietz, Marcus Luttrell, Michael P. Murphy, and Matthew Axelson who took a part of Operation Red Wings with TRUE ACTS OF COURAGE! Films like this give me the push to keep thanking and shaking the hands of the men and woman who serve in our armed forces. Thank you!
CNN host Jake Tapper’s Interview with the subject of the Mark Wahlberg film Lone Survivor, Marcus Luttrell, became tense on Friday when the veteran of Operation Red Wings apparently took offense at Tapper’s suggestion that the botched mission was a mistake. Luttrell defended his fellow veterans who…
As depicted in Peter Berg’s “Lone Survivor,” the four Navy Seals behind Operation Red Wings found themselves in a mighty moral dilemma during their 2005 mission to eliminate Taliban leader Ahmed Shah. Having captured three hapless goat herders who came across their position, the team — Michael Murphy (Taylor Kitsch), Marcus Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg), Danny Dietz (Emile Hirsch) and Matt Axelson (Ben Foster) — argues over whether to keep these two young boys and one old man tied up, take them all out or let them loose and risk being tracked down by Shah and his forces. Murphy ultimately opts for the latter and hopes for the best, asking aloud afterwards, “Isn’t that how things work? Good things happen to good people?” Of course, as the title of both the film and Luttrell’s own memoir reveals, very bad things happened instead and Berg renders each punishment with a fierce, nearly fetishistic amount of detail and distress. After all, to quote a fellow frogman, “moderation is for cowards.” ...

Last night Janice and I went to see the new movie "Lone Survivor" which tells the story of US Navy Seals Danny Dietz, Matt Axelson, Mike Murphy and Marcus Lutrell, all of whom were killed except for Lutrell during Operation Red Wings in Afghanistan. As the son and grandson of vets I have always been intensely interested in military history, and this movie did a remarkable job of showing the *** these men went through. I am not ashamed to admit that I shed a tear more than once, and throughout the night I found myself reflecting on the sacrifice made by so many men and women for each of us. As you each go through your day, enjoying the freedoms purchased with the blood of patriots, I ask you to take a moment each day and remember. Remember that men like Danny, Axe, Mike and Marcus gave everything in service to our country. Remember that they and so many others have been willing to leave their homes and fight on foreign soil, to sweat and bleed and die because they believed protecting our nation and our pe ...
To everyone serving n lost,Michael Murphy,Matthew Axelson,Danny Dietz,and the others lost in Operation Red Wings,I thank you and Salute you,
Based on the eponymous book, Lone Survivor opened in theaters nationwide on Friday to generally positive reviews. The film details the events of Operation Red Wings, a June 28, 2005 mission in Afghanistan
Go watch Lone Survivor this weekend based off memoir of Operation Red Wings & support
I saw the advanced screening at Fort Bliss for the movie Lone Survivor. Wow! It was well done and followed the book closely. The Associated Press editor who wrote an unsavory review for opening weekend, must not be a veteran or be closely related to one. He basically wrote that the movie had depth but not breadth and it didn't capture the imagination. He needs to remember that it was a docudrama, based on Marcus Luttrell's memoir. Everyone should go see the movie this weekend to support the surviving Navy Seal veteran/author, the deceased SEAL's families and deceased Night Stalker's families, director Peter Berg, the Hollywood actors, and anyone else affiliated with Operation Red Wings.
Holmes and I will be going to the movie Lone Survivor today about Operation Red Wings led by Navy Lt. Michael P. Murphy. I don't know if we will be able to sit through it, but we fully support Marcus Luttrell and the memory of Lt. Murphy and his team.

Lone Survivor is by far the best movie to ever release. Rest In Peace to the Men who died during Operation Red Wings. LT Michael P. Murphy, SO2 Matthew Axelson, and SO2 Danny Dietz are the 3 members of the 4 man team that died.
Nothing but respect for everyone involved in Operation Red Wings
I just finished watching an advance copy of "Lone Survivor" an account of Operation Red Wings in June 2005 in Afghanistan of Marcus Luttrell a United States Navy Seal. We all should sincerely thank our military men and women for all they do for our freedoms. We would be sorely remiss to not remember the sacrifices made so that we can choose our own paths in life.
'Lone Survivor' was an amazing movie. It comes out on January 10th, 2014. Everybody who sees this needs to go see it. Based on a true story. Salute to Operation Red Wings. R.I.P.

Marcus Luttrell was at UFC 168 on Saturday.
its good. its true story, over the Navy Seals "Operation Red Wings" back n 2005. When they tried to capture taliban guy Ahmad Shah
Was privileged to see early a must watch film that captures the heroic story of Operation Red Wings.
As the movie "Lone Survivor", based on "Operation Red Wings", I would like to acknowledge Lt. Michael McGreevy. He was KIA as his helo crashed while en route to the battle. He was a great supervisor and even better friend. RIP my brother (CICO...lol)
Lone Survivor is just the type of movie that I used to love about 10-15 years ago when I ate up films like Saving Private Ryan, Black Hawk Down, We Were Soldiers and to a much lesser degree, Windtalkers. Peter Berg, best known as "Irish" Terry Conklin in The Great White Hype, sheds the (fun) mess of Battleship and narrows his focus to tell the story of the disastrous Operation Red Wings, a mission where nearly 20 American soldiers lost their lives. I was impressed with the direction of Berg and found this movie much more visceral (and better) than his other work. Mark Wahlberg, Emile Hirsch, and Taylor Kitsch give good performances, but Ben Foster really steals the show as a badass that seemingly never stops fighting. I did wonder though why the four soldiers didn't move faster away from the threat they knew was going to come for them. I guess I wouldn't have acted so nonchalantly...
he was one of the ones killed in OPERATION RED WINGS which is what Lone Survivor is based on

WARNING!!! This is a long post-proceed at your own risk. It is amazing how seemingly insignificant events can lead you down a path that changes your life forever! I love to read "Chick Lit". Several years ago, I started reading a series of books by Suzanne Brockmann. It was called the Troubleshooters series and was a series of books about the men of the fictitious SEAL Team 16. It was a fun read with many books in the series. In the acknowledgement section of one of the books, she thanked a former SEAL for all his technical assistance and directed us to his website. I don't remember the man's name or the web site but I do remember a link to a YouTube video about Michael Monseur. I then watched many more, amazed with his heroism and the band of brothers who honored him in his death. That lead to videos of Michael Murphy which lead to videos of Marcus Luttrell. Through all of this, I was enthralled and overwhelmed with what I was learning about these brave men. I learned about Operation Red Wings and ...

People who were source of story Lone Survivor based on operation Red Wings
It was an honor and pleasure to meet in person tonight two people I have only known by e-mail for the last couple years, Rear Admiral Ed Kristensen and his wife Suzanne ("Sam"), parents of Lieutenant Commander Erik Kristensen, one of the SEALs killed in Operation Red Wings, played by Eric Bana in the film Lone Survivor. Erik worked for me at Special Operations Command Europe for six months after 9/11, where I was the Joint Operations Center Chief and he was the Naval Special Operations Liaison Officer. They were at a special screening of Lone Survivor and I happened to be at another screening in the same theater. Sam and I were exchanging e-mails this afternoon when we discovered the coincidence of where we all would be. As I looked for them at the theater, Donna Axelson, mother of Matt ("Axe"), kindly took me to where the Kristensens were seated. Of course, it was an honor to meet her also. This was the third time the Kristensens have seen the film, an indication of their commitment and courage.

JUNE 28, 2005: ONE OF THE WORST DAYS IN U.S. SPECIAL OPERATIONS HISTORY OPERATION RED WINGS American forces in Afghanistan knew that terrorists were planning to do everything they could to sabotage the elections, from trying to stop people from voting to assassinat- ing the newly elected officials. To interdict Shah’s attempts in the area, Marine Major Tom Wood, the operations officer of the marine battalion based in the region, created a plan that was a joint Marine Corps and special operations mis- sion, code-named Operation Red Wings. (Later accounts, publications, and web sites would incorrectly refer to the mission as Redwing or Red Wing.) Though Shah and his cadre were the targets, their capture or deaths was just the first, short-term goal of Red Wings. A second part addressed the long-term goal the marines had for the region, the improvement of the lives of the villagers. To accomplish both goals, Major Wood broke Red Wings down into five phases: the first two were to be led by special operation ...

Affordable, family fun, and very entertaining, this about sums up, not only my experieince at Dawgs games at Veterans Memorial Park in Little Falls this past season, but residents from all around the Mohawk Valley are echoing the same opinion. For us fans, who pay for tickets, grab a seat, and relax watching baseball for a few hours of escape from reality, it’s an easy night out. But in getting the product out, there has to be a team behind the team, that makes it all possible. And the growing success of Owner David Dittmann’s club based in Little Falls becomes increasingly obvious, there’s a shadow, a very large one in that, between ownership and the on-field product – General Manager Travis Heiser. This past weekend I spoke with Travis, to get a recap, of sorts, on how his fifth season associated with the organization went. During his first season, Travis was on . ...

While LT Murphy was in Afghanistan he wore the patch of FDNY Engine 53 Ladder 43 El Barrio's Bravest to remind them of 9-11-01. It is only fitting that they now wear a patch honoring the men of Operation Red Wings.
Great movies coming out about our brave warriors who served and sacrificed to ensure our freedom and to keep us safe. The first one is Lone Survivor (read the book!) which is about Operation Red Wings. Here are some pics of the family members and the cast who will be representing our great warriors US Navy Seals - Danny Dietz, Matt Axelson, Michael Murphy and Marcus Luttrell. Jack and I support the Lone Survivor Foundation and continue to share this awesome organization that supports our wounded veterans and families.

The Navy UDT-SEAL Museum currently has on display a unique tribute to Lone Survivor Marcus Luttrell and the fallen of Operation Red Wings. A feature on
Naval Special Warfare Command (NSW) marked the seventh anniversary of Operation Red Wings with a memorial ceremony June
On this date -- June 29, 2005: As Operation Red Wings continued, two platoons from 2d Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment moved by helicopter to a ridgeline a few kilometers from the crash site of the Quick Reaction Force. The Rangers infiltrated by using 90 foot fast ropes. A third platoon from 2/75 moved by ground. The movement to the downed aircraft took the Rangers through some of the most difficult terrain in all of Afghanistan. After seven hours, they reached and secured the crash site. Unfortunately, there were no survivors.
All these are my brothers...Airborne All The Way!
