America, Facts, and Family: OPERATION RED WINGS JUNE 28, 2005 WILL ALWAYS PLACE THE MISSION FIRST. IWILL NEVER ACCEPT DEFEAT WILL NEVER QUIT. I WILL NEVER LEAVE A FALLEN COMRADE. β€œOn June 28, 2005, four SEALs – Lt. Michael β€œMurph” Murphy, Gunner’s Mate 2nd Class Danny Dietz, Sonar Technician 2nd Class Matthew β€œAxe” Axelson, and Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Marcus Luttrell – were carrying out an op to place eyes on known terrorist Ahmad Shah. After positioning themselves amongst the shale of a mountainside in the Hindu Kush east of Asadabad, they were compromised by a trio of supposed goatherders. Deciding it would violate the ROE to kill the three Afghans, the SEALs let them go and immediately moved out. Just a few short hours later, the men were fighting for their lives, and when the proverbial dust settled, only Marcus Luttrell had physically survived.” (excerpt from β€œThe Brotherhood: Remembering the 9th Anniversary of Operation Red Wings”) 12 years may have passed but the pain of those losses remains fresh for the families of the men who died. Some families have worked tirelessly to build a long-term memorial to one or more of the men. marcusluttrell works with a number of charitable organizations but it is his Lone Survivor Foundation that stands out among the others. The LoneSurvivor Foundation is a 501(c)3 that works to help wounded servicemembers and their families heal both physically and mentally. Marcus felt the environment in which he recovered from his own devastating injuries would benefit others, and he uses his foundation to make it happen. Others such as the Axelson family – Matt Axelson was one of the three SEALs killed during the firefight on the ground – strive to help other military families and organizations in various ways while building a business as a constantly-growing tribute to their loved one. Axelson Tactical manufacturers high-quality firearms and although they’re a new company, they’re certainly a promising one. They do it all in Matt’s memory. The sacrifices made on that shale-strewn mountainside in 2005 are important to remember for many reasons. First and foremost is the simple fact that sacrifices such as those made by the men of OperationRedWings are what make America, America. We enjoy more freedoms than any other nation thanks to the blood, sweat, and tears of our military.
