Help us honor and pay tribute to the 19 brave men lost to us on Operation Red Wings!

On June 28th, 2005 a four man Navy SEAL surveillance and reconnaissance team was inserted onto the slopes of Sawtalo Sar in the Pech District of Afghanistan’s Kunar Province.  The purpose of this mission was to locate and identify a local terrorist leader, Ahmad Shah.  The team was compromised when some local goat herders happened to cross their path and see them.  After letting these locals go, the four man unit was then attacked by a host of Taliban terrorists.  In the ensuing gun battle, Navy SEALs Danny Dietz, Michael P. Murphy, and Matthew Axelson are killed by enemy gun fire.  The lone remaining SEAL, Marcus Luttrell, is critically injured in multiple areas.

However, during the firefight, team leader LT Mike Murphy intentionally exposed himself to enemy gun fire to get a clear communication signal out calling for the Quick Reaction Force (QRF) to reinforce them.  LT Murphy is shot multiple times, taking his life.  LT Murphy would earn the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions.

The message was received at Bagram AFB and a MH-47 Chinook helicopter was dispatched immediately with eight SEALs.  This helicopter was shot down by a rocket propelled grenade as the SEALs were beginning to disembark killing all eight SEALs and the 8 Army Knight Stalker crew members on board.

Luttrell would live through the ordeal and eventually return to the US and author the book “Lone Survivor” which was also made into a movie of the same name.
