Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell returned from his star-crossed
mission in Afghanistan with his bones shattered and his heart broken. So many
had given their lives to save him, and he would have readily done the same for
them. As he recuperated, he wondered why he and others, from America’s founding
to today, had been willing to sacrifice everything, including themselves, for
the sake of family, nation, and freedom.
In Service, we follow Marcus Luttrell to Iraq, where
he returns to the battlefield as a member of SEAL Team 5 to help take on the
most dangerous city in the world: Ramadi, the capital of the war-torn Al Anbar
Province. There, in six months of high-intensity urban combat, he would be part
of what has been called the greatest victory in the history of US Special
Operations forces. We also return to Afghanistan and Operation Redwing, where
Luttrell offers powerful new details about his miraculous rescue. Throughout,
he reflects on what it really means to take on a higher calling, on the men
he’s seen lose their lives for their country, and on the legacy of those who
came and bled before.
A thrilling war story, Service is also a profoundly
moving tribute to the warrior brotherhood, to the belief that nobody goes it
alone, and no one will be left behind. Download and start listening now!
