Join Marcus Luttrell, decorated Navy SEAL and author of “Lone Survivor,” at our Presents Luncheon!
The Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health, in partnership with Angelo State University, is proud to announce the 2024 Presents keynote speaker and guest, Marcus Luttrell.
About Marcus Luttrell
Marcus Luttrell’s #1 New York Times best-selling book, “Lone Survivor”, tells the harrowing story of four Navy SEALs who journeyed into the mountainous border between Afghanistan and Pakistan during Operation Red Wings. Aside from documenting Luttrell’s unparalleled story of survival, the book also serves as a moving tribute to the friends and teammates who did not make it of the mountain. A powerful testament to the courage, integrity, patriotism and community that forged these American heroes, “Lone Survivor” is an incredible account of teamwork, fortitude and modern warfare.
In January 2014, Luttrell’s amazing story made the leap to the big screen with the blockbuster film, “Lone Survivor”, directed by Peter Berg (Battleship, Hancock) and starring Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter, The Departed) as Marcus Luttrell. The film celebrated a historic open, earning the second biggest January debut of all time.
About the Keynote Presentation
In an unparalleled and inspiring program, Marcus Luttrell takes guests from the rigors of SEAL training and what it takes to join America’s elite fighting force, to the battle on the mountain, into his family’s experience of community support and generosity and back to his own incredible story of survival and grace. He weaves a rich account of courage, sacrifice, honor, patriotism, community and destiny that audiences will find both wrenching and life-affirming.
In an emotionally raw account, he honors the memories of all those who died, sharing with us the incredible bravery, courage and honor of these extraordinary warriors. He holds their lives up as examples of this guiding philosophy of the SEALs:
“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. I will draw on every remaining ounce of strength to protect my teammates and accomplish our mission. I am never out of the fight.”
