There were one or two frightening occasions when I heard it in broad daylight and found myself pressed against a wall, my hands covering my ears.” » Marcus Luttrell, Operation Redwing


“We know about bad guys, what they do, and often, who they are. The politicians have chosen to send us into battle, and that’s our trade. We do what’s necessary.

“In the military, if we don’t know something, we say we don’t know and proceed to shut up until we do. Some highly paid charlatans in the media think it’s absolutely fine to take a wild guess at the truth and then tell a couple of million people it’s cast-iron fact, just in case they might be right…I hope they’re proud of themselves, because they nearly broke my mom’s heart…. ” » Marcus Luttrell, Operation Redwing


“But my back hurt like hell. I never realized how much pain three cracked vertebrae could inflict on a guy. Of course, I never realized I had three cracked vertebrae either. I could move my right shoulder despite a torn rotator cuff, which I also didn’t realize I had. And my broken nose throbbed a bit, which was kid’s stuff compared with the rest. I knew one side of my face was shredded by the fall down the mountain, and the big cut on my forehead was pretty sore.” » Marcus Luttrell, Operation Redwing


“My heart dropped directly into my stomach. And I cursed those fucking goatherds to hell, and myself for not executing them when every military codebook ever written had taught me otherwise.

“…and I am left feeling that no matter how much the drip-drip-drip of hostility toward us is perpetuated by the liberal press, the American people simply do not believe it. They are rightly proud of the armed forces of the United States of America. They innately understand what we do. And no amount of poison about our alleged brutality, disregard of the Geneva Convention, and abuse of the human rights of terrorists is going to change what most people think…Some members of the media might think they can brainwash the public any time they like, but I know they can’t. Not here. Not in the United States of America.” » Marcus Luttrell, Operation Redwing Historyvshollywood.com


“These men of the special forces have had other optinos in their lives, other paths, easier paths they could have taken. But they took the hardest path, that narrow causeway that is not for the sunshine patriot. They took the one for the supreme patriot, the one that may require them to lay down their lives for the United States of America. The one that is suitable only for those who want to serve their country so bad, nothing else matters. That’s probably not fashionable in our celebrity-obsessed modern world. But special forces guys don’t give a damn about that either…..They are of course aware of a higher calling, because they are sworn to defend this country and to fight its battles.” » Marcus Luttrell, Operation Redwing
