The Roanoke Regional Forum kicks off its fifth season with Marcus Luttrell, a decorated Navy SEAL and bestselling author of “Lone Survivor.” Luttrell tells his harrowing story as one of four Navy SEALs who journeyed into the mountainous border of Afghanistan and Pakistan on Operation Redwing. An unparalleled motivational story of survival, it is also a moving tribute to the friends and teammates who did not make it off the mountain.
Late this year, Luttrell’s amazing story will make the leap to the big screen in what promises to be a blockbuster success. The film, directed by Peter Berg, is slated to feature Mark Wahlberg as Luttrell.
