Honor, courage, and patriotism. Duty, determination, desire. Love for country and love for family. A willingness to exchange one’s life for his country. Brotherhood, accountability, and steel-hearted resolve. These characteristics describe Marcus Luttrell, the Navy Seal who survived a firefight with Taliban foot soldiers in the mountains of Afghanistan.
Lone Survivor is a book for every American. It recaptures the love for freedom that so many have either forgotten about or neglected. It restores confidence in America’s ability to lead the world, that is to say, when there is competent leadership in place – in this case, President George W. Bush.
I commend Lone Survivor for freedom-loving Americans. It not only props up the cause of freedom in our great nation; it memorializes the men and women who have paid the ultimate price to protect the freedom we cherish so much.
