Some great men on a worthy mission..... looks like it might be worth a look-see . . . S.L.

Mark Wahlberg plays real-life Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell in "Lone Survivor" - based on the events that unfolded during failed mission in 2005: "Operation Red Wings."

This clip features Alexander Ludwig as Petty Officer Second Class Shane Patton, delivering a somber "Ballad of the Frogmen" over scenes of he and his fellow SEALs training for the mission to come. In short order, a four-man team heads out to hunt down infamous Taliban leader Ahmad Shah along the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. Things start to go south early in the mission.

"Lone Survivor" tells the harrowing true story of the four members of SEAL Team 10 - Marcus Luttrell, Mike Murphy (Taylor Kitsch), Danny Dietz (Emile Hirsch), and Matt Axelson (Ben Foster) - who, on June 28, 2005, were assigned to carry out "Operation Red Wings." The mission was compromised, and three of the four men didn't return home.

"Lone Survivor," directed by Peter Berg, will hit theaters in New York City and Los Angeles on December 27, 2013, and the rest of the U.S. on January 10, 2014.

We must watch war movies, to honor the warriors who sacrifice on our behalf, and this is the kind of war movie that we must watch.



  1. Considering that Mark Wahlberg is an outspoken enemy of the Second Amendment, I wouldn't pay a dime to see anything he is involved with.

    1. I agree, while I appreciate honoring our true heroes and especially appreciate Marcus Luttrell's story being told, you can almost bet the family farm that there will be anti-military slants built in. Besides, them hollyweird types already got way more money than they know what to do with.......

  2. I did not know that about Mark Wahlberg. I must educate myself.

  3. "I would love it if they could take all the guns away. ... to protect the people who can't protect themselves," Mark Wahlberg bemoaned in the Herald Sun in 2007.

  4. Charlton Heston was a friend of mine, as he was of all liberty-loving Americans, and I will never spend 5 cents on anything containing Mark Wahlberg.

  5. I will wait and rent it on redbox, thus reducing my contribution to Marky Mark to about a nickle. Also, Michael Murphy is immortalized already in Crossfit. The workout Murph is generally considered to be the toughest WOD amongst the Heroes. Good Bull.
