First Thoughts

Operation Red Wings

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.

Let me introduce you to. Army Ranger and Night Stalker, Marcus Murralles. Sergeant First Class Marcus V. Murralles died June 28, 2005, in eastern Afghanistan when his MH-47E Chinook Helicopter was shot down by enemy fire during combat rescue operations. This operation has since come to be known by "Operation Red Wings" and most recently the movie, Lone Survior. Mark (as he was known by his family and friends) is buried at Arlington National Cemetery Section 60, Grave 8199. He is survived by his wife Diana, and two children, Anna & Dominic. Today would have been his 43rd birthday. Happy Angel Birthday Mark!

We have a very special guest joining us at C4 on Monday, Oct 6. You may know the story of Operation Red Wings, as told by Marcus Luttrell in the book, “Lone Survivor.” As part of this story, we celebrate the life of Michael Murphy by taking on the Murph Challenge on Memorial Day each year. But some of you may not know the story of Danny Dietz, a SEAL who fought shoulder–to-shoulder with Murph, Marcus and Matt Axelson that day. We invite you to come meet Danny’s mom, Cindy Dietz-Marsh, beginning at 4pm until the box closes {along with a special Hero WOD in her son’s honor}. She will be selling t-shirts and signing copies of the book “Danny: The Virtues Within” whose proceeds benefit the Danny Dietz Memorial Fund, a scholarship trust for Heritage High School (Danny's alma mater) l in Littleton, Colorado. [We aren’t sure about payments accepted, so cash is encouraged.] Cindy is eager to tell the story not of how Danny (who she calls DJ) died, but how he lived, and all of the things that ...

Lone Survivor is about Navy Seal team 10... Operation Red Wings... The fact that They referred to Ahmad Shah as
Battle Arms is proud to be a part of this project to pay tribute to the four Navy Seals of Operation Red Wings, the team mates of SEAL Team 10 and the personnel from the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (call sign Turbine 33) who were killed during the rescue attempt. The profits from the sales of these rifles will be donated to various charities to be determined by the Axelson family. Sionics Weapon System is building (100) limited edition rifles for the Axelson family under their business name of Axelson Tactical. The goal was not to simply build a clone of other existing rifles, but rather to make a rifle that combined a variety of designs and concepts and yet remain a practical rifle, I believe Sionics Weapon System has done just that Specs: 1. SIONICS 18" SPR stainless barrel 2. Geissele MKII Super Modular Rail, SSA-E trigger and gas block 3. SIONICS Upper and Lower Receiver with special engraving 4.

Copied from another site: Some of you know that annually since September 11, 2001 local students and community members in Jefferson City, MO have put together different events to support and/or honor the troops, veterans or first responders or a combination of the three. This year the tradition continues with a veteran appreciation dinner and care package program in November called Operation Bugle Boy (OBB). This year the guests of honor are the families of 3 fallen Navy Seals Lt. Michael P. Murphy (Medal of Honor), Petty Officer Danny P. Dietz Jr. (Navy Cross) and Petty Officer Matthew Gene "Axe" Axelson (Navy Cross). All three were killed in action during Operation Red Wings which was depicted in the best selling book and block-buster movie "Lone Survivor". All three of these men, along with fallen local Marine Lance Corporal Leon Deraps who was killed during Operation Iraqi Freedom, have foundations in their name. To express appreciation to the families of these fallen heroes a commemorative rifle ...

Lt. Michael Murphy, team leader during operation red wings. The story behind the movie Lone Survivor. I will never forget. ...
I just saw Lone Survivor and overall it was pretty good, the acting was pretty good, the war sequences were very well done with some nice editing and I can see why it was up for the 2 Oscars plus I am glad they didn't sugarcoat it, I liked how they showed that not everyone in Afghanistan (or everyone else in the Middle East) are nut-jobs who want American blood on there hands and there are good people living in the harsh environment, and the movie was pretty well paced, my only complaint is I didn't find the characters all that memorable but even then I can forgive that because the whole point of this movie was to tell Marcus Luttrell's story and I felt they overall did a good job, now I fail to see how it's American propaganda because it was showing us the event of Operation Red Wings from the point of view of Marcus Luttrell, if I really wanted to see an American propaganda film I would watch a war movie directed by Michael Bay, still overall Lone Survivor was still a solid war movie and while I can't s ...
Just got done watching Lone Survivor and Operation Red Wings. May the power above bless the ones we lost and their families.
Thank you to all who fought during Operation Red Wings. You are all American Heroes.
I just got done watching Lone Survivor. All I have to say is thank you. And how much you soldiers out there have done, also the fact that you risk your lives for ours and I love you for that so thank you too the soldiers of Operation Red Wings, and all of the other American soldiers out there for your support to make me proud to be an American.
We just watched "Lone Survivor". Every American should watch this movie. Every.Single.American. Then maybe, just maybe, those who support the "exchange" that just took place will understand what the outrage is all about. God Bless Marcus Luttrell and the men of Operation Red Wings.
Just watched Lone Survivor, these are the faces of the lives lost in Operation Red Wings.
Jill and I finally watched "Lone Survivor," starring Mark Wahlberg, which tells the story of Operation Red Wings and is based on Marcus Luttrell's book. Wow ... just, wow.

Another hero to remember on this historic day, Lt Michael Murphy, who headed up Operation Red Wings in Afghanistan in 2005, which is the basis for the movie Lone Survivor.
Just watched for the 3rd time, I swear it gets more sad every time. Rest in peace to all who died during operation red wings🇺🇸

Watched "Lone Survivor," based on the true story of "Operation Red Wings" and Marcus Luttrell. Intense doesn't even begin to describe it. Speechless. Grateful for guys like this.
Just finished watching Lone Survivor. Wow!! What an unbelievable story about Operation Red Wings. The display of bravery, sacrifice, and balls was absolutely jaw dropping. The fact the production was based on true events left me speechless.
"Lone Survivor" (2013) With a war-film recounting the terror of a single mission during the ongoing War in Afghanistan, Peter Berg is certainly beginning to turn to his career around already. His latest film "Lone Survivor", which recounts the Operation Red Wings mission in which a SEAL Reconnaissance tried to track down Taliban leader Ahmed Shah, brings out the graphic brutality of a war-zone, and create one of the most realistic war settings of this film generation. Berg creates a lot of build-up in this movie. On the down-side, the first half of the movie, in which we get to know Navy-Seals does drag on a little. The four main members of the mission are all interesting and well performed, if not a little one-dimensional. When the mission starts however, is when the heart really begins to race. The environment in which the four Navy Seals travel in, is well depicted by relying on the natural rugged and desolate landscapes of America to recreate Afghanistan. With a good use of lighting and low-camera sho ...
I need some reassurance or some proof that we might be together cause I don't see how anymore. I want it and would love it but it seems too good to be true now. I can't do what i have to do now, work, go to school with the stress of being in love with you and not being with you and getting crushed by escapades with another woman or other women, and these women constantly trying to throw stuff in my face, I need it all to be gone/done. Another threat after yesterday when the cummings plumbing truck drove by me again I pulled in front and slowed down to show i don't care what message they are giving me if I want to imagine sleeping with you I will, it is just hard now when I don't know how or when we could be together for real.

The fallen heroes of operation red wings
Operation Red Wings: Same kind of bad guy (1) as the 5 just released was the SEALs' objective. . 19 Americans KIA. Would we have freed HIM?
If you have not seen it yet, I recommend watching "Lone Survivor"! The film is based on the book by Marcus Luttrell and Patrick Robinson. It's a true story about the United States Navy Seals counter-insurgent mission "Operation Red Wings" in Afghanistan. A four-man SEAL reconnaissance team was tasked to track Taliban leader Ahmad Shah. Unfortunately the mission did not go as planned. You will need a kleenex or 2!! ***Warning, it's pretty graphic***
"I've seen Lone Survivor. I've read the book. We basically got the gist of what happened up on that mountain and Operation Red Wings. But what we didn't know was who Michael Murphy was. Where he grew up, what type of person he was. I really enjoyed hearing the stories and seeing the man behind the camo. I enjoyed hearing what he was about and what he stood for in every day life. Not just war. [MURPH: The Protector] wasn't about politics or war. It was a beautiful story of a young man with such promise and hope who left the world too soon. I highly recommend to anyone who is interested in hearing about a true American hero." IMDb Reviewer
I get to do an interview with the families of the fallen soldiers from the movie Lone Survivor also known as Operation Red Wings. Even just meeting them was a very humbling experience. What an honor this will be.

City of Rochester Operation Clean Sweep: May 3. The City of Rochester is partnering with the Rochester Red Wings...
LT. Michael P. Murphy United States Navy (SEAL) May 7, 1976 – June 28, 2005 LT. Michael P. Murphy (SEAL) was the officer-in-charge of a four-man SEAL element in support of Operation Red Wings, tasked with finding a key anti-coalition militia commander near Asadabad, Afghanistan. Shortly after inserting into the objective area, the SEALs were spotted by three goat herders who were initially detained and then released. It is believed the goat herders immediately reported the SEALs’ presence to Taliban fighters. A fierce gun battle ensued on the steep face of the mountain between the SEALs and a much larger enemy force. Despite the intensity of the firefight and suffering grave gunshot wounds himself, Murphy is credited with risking his own life to save the lives of his teammates. Murphy, intent on making contact with headquarters, but realizing this would be impossible in the extreme terrain where they were fighting, unhesitatingly and with complete disregard for his own life moved into the open, where ...

"'SEAL' of Honor" by C/2nd Lt. Taylor April Issue, pgs. 3 & 4 As many of you have recently seen, the movie “Lone Survivor” was an action-packed shooter and tearjerker at every turn. Understanding that Hollywood occasionally embellishes some “real life” events, I decided to do a little research into the life of US Navy Seal Michael Murphy, who – if you haven’t seen the movie, I suggest you stop reading here!!! – gave his life to help his team obtain support and is the subject of the book “Seal of Honor”. This is what I found: Murphy’s upbringings resemble that of any American guy – born in NY in 1976, he worked as a summer lifeguard and played ice hockey. He went to college at Penn State and dual-majored in political science and psychology. After college, he decided to serve his country afterattending Navy Seal Mentorship sessions. Murphy completed all required training and was commissioned as a Lieutenant in the Navy Seals. The movie “Lone Survivor” is about Operation Red Wings, ...
Dedicated to the men of Operation Red Wings
is an epic film which offers you drama, suspense and thrill throughout the movie. Based on true events, the movie depicts the story of exceptional courage and heroism shown by US Navy Seals during "Operation Red Wings" in Afghanistan. Mind boggling is the only word for this movie. Do watch this film !!!
Mr Luttrell. I recently purchased Matthew Axelson’s and Michael Murphy’s Commemorative Challenge Coins. Do you know anywhere I can purchase Danny Dietz’s coin. I carry Axe’s and Murph’s coins with me daily. Ever since I discovered the story of Operation Red Wings, the four of you have never left my mind. I have supported Special Forces and the US military since 1985. I won’t let anyone go unforgotten and they will always be remembered as long as I live. It very important I find Danny’s coin and no sir it is not for monetary gain, these coins are very personal and dear to me, i refuse to part with them. If you could help me sir I would gladly appreciate it. I know I didn’t know you or your brothers, but I miss them and think of them and you daily. God Bless you Mr. Luttrell.
I watched 3 times on demand but will buy the DVD to share the story, courage with my son. Honor all from Operation Red Wings

The Memorial Day Murph is fast approaching. Let's get this challenge to 20,000 and honor LT Michael Murphy and we NEVER FORGET the heroes of Operation Red Wings!
Spent the day with my Remington peeps which is always awesome but while there had the honor to meet and eat lunch with several Navy Seals and Army Rangers including Marcus Luttrell former Navy Seal and a Navy Cross and Purple Heart recipient who are in town for a stop on their Patriot Tour. Marcus wrote the book "Lone Survivor" (later made into the movie) about his first hand account of the Operation Red Wings, an engagement that would leave his entire team dead, except for him. The rescue team of 8 Seals and 8 Army Spec Ops was shot down and all were killed as well. These are true American heroes and the most intense human beings I've ever met. It was truly an honor.

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.
The Soldiers of the 160th SOAR take on the most impossible missions, though they know they may not return
Lone Survivor, 10/10 And the ending pre credit scene made me tear up. The movie is about the Navy Seals in Operation Red Wings.. Sad, tense, Inspirational and a REALLY good movie overall. Well worth the watch

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.
