I will never quit. I persevere and thrive on adversity. My Nation expects me to be physically harder and mentally stronger than my enemies. If knocked down, I will get back up, every time.
— Marcus Luttrell, Lone Survivor

Marcus Luttrell (born November 7, 1975) is a former United States Navy SEAL who received the Navy Cross and Purple Heart for his actions in June 2005 against Taliban fighters during Operation Red Wings. By the end of his eight year long career in the United States Navy Luttrell had reached special warfare operator, first class (SO1).

Luttrell enlisted in the US Navy in March 1999, where he eventually qualified himself for the US Navy SEALs and followed the Special Operations Combat Medic (SOCM) course. He was deployed to Iraq with SEAL Team 5 on April 14, 2003, during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, to root out and destroy leftover Iraqi resistance and joined in the search for weapons of mass destruction.

He was deployed to Afghanistan in 2005 with SEAL Team Ten, during which he was involved in Operation Red Wings. While on patrol, Luttrell's squad was spotted by a group of local herdsmen who passed their location on to a group of Taliban fighters. The fighters ambushed Luttrell and his team, with Luttrell being the sole survivor of the attack, only losing consciousness. Once he returned to his senses, he managed to evade enemy capture with the help of a group of Pashtun villagers, one of them being Mohammad Gulab, who eventually sent an emissary to the nearest U.S. base to secure Luttrell's safe rescue and ultimately saved his life.

After making a full recovery, Lutrell returned to active duty and deployed to Ramadi during Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2006, as part of SEAL Team Five. He later had his knees blown out and fractured his spine again. These injuries ultimately led to his discharge.

Luttrell returned to the US in 2007 and co-authored the New York Times bestseller Lone Survivor about his experience during Operation Red Wings. He also established the Lone Survivor Foundation to support fellow special forces veterans and co-hosted After Action, a TV show in which former special operations veterans talk about issues in the United States.

Marcus Luttrell and 4 US Navy SEALs approach Saddam Hussein's compound. Luttrell's fellow Seal shoots an RPG-7 into the building, killing Saddam's guard, but Saddam escapes Blue. Saddam's soldiers runs to aid Saddam, with a Republican Guardsman throwing a RGD-5 grenade, killing 2 Navy SEALS Red Red. Saddam and his Guard leave in a car, all for a Navy SEAL to kill the driving soldier with a Mossberg 500 shot to the head, decapitating him Blue. Saddam fires his pistol, but missed Luttrell. Another SEAL shoots an RPG-7, killing a Guard Blue. Saddam's sniper, hiding in what was the compound, snipes a Navy SEAL, killing him Red. Luttrell shoots and kills Saddam's last Guard with his Berretta 92FS Blue. Saddam comes out from hiding in the remains of the compound, killing a SEAL with a point-blank range Browning high-powered pistol round to the back of the head Red. Luttrell and Saddam hold each other before firing off the remaining rounds of their pistols at each other, wounding each other. Saddam hides in the backseat of the car, with a Dragunov Sniper Rifle. Saddam fires a shot at the compound, thinking he killed Luttrell, but Luttrell comes around from the other side of the car, fires his Mossberg 500 shotgun, killing Saddam in the car, point-blank right between Saddam's eyes, scrambling his brains all over the roof of the car Blue. Luttrell lays beside the mangled car as the Army medics arrive to retrieve him and his deceased comrades.
