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.

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.

“Respect to the men of Operation Red Wings
Respect to the men of Operation Red Wings
Take a moment to pay your respects to the fallen Navy Seals of Operation Red Wings, June 27, 2005, and Marcus Lutrell
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 ...
On this page you will find listings for the 11 Navy Seals and 8 Night Stalkers (members of the U.S. Army's 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment) that were Killed in Action during Operation Red Wings in Kunar Province, Afghanistan, on 28 June 2005. Three SEALs were killed on the ground (Murphy,…
On June 28, 2005, three of four Navy Seals on the ground (Michael P. Murphy, Danny Dietz, Matthew G. Axelson) were killed during combat operations in support of Operation Red Wings. On the same say, a QRF of eight SEALs and 8 Army Night Stalkers were also killed when the MH-47 helicopter that they were aboard was shot down by enemy fire in the vicinity of Asadabad, Afghanistan in Kumar Province. This was the worst single-day U.S. Forces death toll since Operation Enduring Freedom began. It was the single largest loss of life for Naval Special Warfare since World War II. SEAL Marcus Luttrell was the only surviving member of his 4-man ground team. If you haven't read his book, or seen the movie "Lone Survivor", you should.
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.

A lot of respect to the guys in Operation Red Wings, sad story! Lone Survivor is amazing!
Just finished watching two movies that seemed appropriate today. First was "The Monuments Men" and second was "Lone Survivor" I knew I was supporting the families of the men of "Operation Red Wings" now I know more about history of that ill-fated mission. God Speed, Brothers!
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🇺🇸
I only pray that if the day comes where I have to be as brave as the men of operation red wings that I can be half as honorable and brave as they were. For all my rook buddies of kilo company and all my NUEMS and NAS guys and gals you are forever my family.
Once again. There's just something about a SEAL. Operation Red Wings. Ultimate sacrifice. ♥
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. Especiallly after all the falso hopes recently it seems like a set up, but one "they" are trying to prevent for some reason. News today in Cummings, Georgia!! Was of man called Marx equipped with all kinds of guns and eplosives and zip ties kills a courhouse employee. Just wat ...
All my respect goes out to the men who fought and gave their lives on the day(s) of Operation Red Wings
every time i watch or hear about Operation Red Wings and the Heroes involved it has me in tears. RIP!

Just watched again. R.I.P to those who lost their lives in Operation Red Wings & R.I.P HOORAH
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***
Four Navy Seals on a covert mission encounter goat herders who are likely connected to the Taliban. If they let them go, they can expect hundreds of enemies swarming them within hours. If they kill them, they violate the Geneva Convention. What should they do? In homage to the men that were killed, Lone Survivor closely mirrors the true story of Operation Red Wings, a tragic 2005 mission gone wrong in Afghanistan. But director Peter Berg did splice in some Hollywood drama. TIME fact-checks Lone Survivor, which opened nationwide Jan. 10, against an eyewitness account (also titled Lone Survivor) written by Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell (Mark Wahlberg in the film). WARNING: spoilers abound, though the title does give away a key plot point in the film

Happy Angel Birthday to Navy SEAL Jeff Taylor who selflessly sacrificed his life during Operation Red Wings.
"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 www.murphmovie.com
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.
Happy birthday to a hero,Michael McGreevy who risked his life on operation Red Wings,for those of you who don't know this is the mission that Lone Survivor potrays,Happy Birthday fly high angel

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 ...

In loving memory of those that died in Operation Red wings and so many operations, May their soul continue to rest in peace
"'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

Hats off to the men of Operation Red Wings — watching Lone Survivor
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.
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 ...
these are the men of operation red wings and they are my heroes. 🇺🇸 I love you.
We only have 7 coins left! Be sure to grab them now! These limited coins are in honor of the men of Operation Red Wings. Recently portrayed in the movie Lone Survivor. Please show your support and honor these amazing heroes! Get them here:

film about UTD Navy Seals Op in afghan - Operation Red Wings. True story.
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 ...
The Soldiers of the 160th SOAR take on the most impossible missions, though they know they may not return

Lone Survivor! Make sure to go see this amazing film that honors the courageous of Operation Red Wings
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

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.
Joseph Maguire, Vice Admiral, U.S. Navy (ret), discusses helping the children of the lost SEALs and soldiers of Operation Red Wings and also the release of the movie, Lone Survivor. See how your funds and support are helping the children and …… [ 44 more words. ]
It was fitting to include Marcus Luttrell, the actual survivor of Operation Red Wings, into the cast of "Lone Survivor."
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…
The story behind Operation Red Wings as seen in
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.
Watching Murph The Protector. Story about Navy SEAL and MOH recipient Michael Murphy who was killed in Operation Red Wings in 2005
Lone Survivor author Marcus Luttrell detailing his Operation Red Wings injuries to me: "Shot. Eleven through-and-through [lacerations]. Broken pelvis. Broken back. Shoulder was torn out. My knees were destroyed. Pretty severe facial damage. I bit my tongue in half. My right hand was destroyed from my thumb over to my index finger. That’s about as much as I can think of right now.”
The Province Peter Berg brings 'Lone Survivor' out of the woods USA TODAY NEW YORK — One day, a few years ago, director and sometime-actor Peter Berg picked up a copy of Marcus Luttrell's searing Lone Survivor, detailing the former Navy SEAL's horrific ordeal as part of Operation Red Wings in Afgh...
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. Jeffrey Taylor, Jacques Fontan, Jeffrey Lucas, Daniel Healy, Michael Russell, Michael McGreevy Jr., Chris Scherkenbach, James Ponder III, Kip Jacoby, Marcus Muralles, Shamus Goare, Corey Goodnature, Shane Patton, Danny Dietz, Erik Kristensen, Matthew Axelson and Michael Murphy. 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

Great seeing promoting Lone Survivor movie on 19 Elite Soldiers lost their life during Operation Red Wings
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.
(including Marcus Luttrell whose book, "Lone Survivor" about surviving Operation Red Wings has been made into a movie starring Mark Wahlberg
