Former Navy SEAL Luttrell speaks to the Mizzou football team on Wednesday

Multiple posts on social media revealed that famed war veteran Marcus Luttrell was present on campus in Columbia, speaking to the Missouri football team. 

A member of the Navy SEALS, Luttrell’s harrowing experience in Afghanistan involved his team being ambushed by Taliban fighters. He was the only member of his four-person unit to survive the attack. Luttrell withstood multiple injuries and unconsciousness en route to surviving the ordeal with the help of local villagers. 

It was great having my good friend/brother @marcusluttrell come to Mizzou today to do a duo interview with myself and speak to my Mizzou family!! Greatly appreciated my brother.

His story was made into the 2013 film entitled Lone Survivor. It came on the heels of Luttrell’s 2007 book under the same title. 

Luttrell’s courageous act of perseverance is truly inspiring. Surely, the Missouri football team will be impacted by this experience.
