On Tuesday, Marcus Luttrell spoke to Megyn Kelly about the movie that chronicles his real-life story and the accusations that the movie is pro-war. Luttrell was obviously shocked at the thought anyone would see anything “glorious” in a war.
Luttrell said, “There’s nothing glorious about war. There’s nothing glorious about holding your friends in your arms and watching them die.”
“There’s nothing glorious about having to leave your home for six to eight months while your family’s back here and you’re away.” Marcus Luttrell went on to explain to Kelly why our members of the military do their jobs and in the process risk their lives in order to protect others and their country.
“Bottom line is that there’s bad people everywhere. And every now and again we are going to have to step to them to make sure that we preserve our way of life.”
“It’s people like my teammates and I that have to do that, and the men and women in the military. But there’s nothing glorious about it, there’s nothing pro-war. Nobody wants war, it’s the most horrible thing in the world.”
The movie, “Lone Survivor” is about his SEAL team, his brotherhood of men who were and are willing to lay down their lives for one another, Luttrell added. He went on to explain how the movie is also supposed to reveal how good people can be found everywhere in the world.
He was referencing the people in the Afghan village that stepped up and protected him during such a hellish and difficult ordeal.
The lesson to be taken from the movie is the very real risk and danger our men and women in the military face every day. Our freedoms don’t come free, but on the backs of our brave men and women of the military.
