Author on Deck Lecture: Service – A Navy SEAL at War

May 8, 2012 @ 5:30 pm

As part of the United States Navy Memorial’s Authors on Deck book lecture series and in celebration of the memorial’s 25th Anniversary, author Marcus Luttrell will present his latest work, SERVICE: A Navy Seal at War (Little, Brown & Co.; May 1, 2012). SERVICE is both a war story for the ages and a heartfelt tribute to all who have served.

In October 2006, after miraculously returning from a star-crossed mission in Afghanistan, Marcus Luttrell decided to go back to war. During six months of high-intensity urban fighting in the most dangerous city in the world – Ramadi, Iraq – he was part of one of the greatest victories in the history of the SEAL teams. When leaving military life to return home, Luttrell began a quest to understand how and why a rare few choose to risk their lives to serve their country. Drawing on the experiences of warriors of all generations and service branches and exploring their amazing stories, Luttrell has produced a profoundly moving testament to American courage and sacrifice. Prior to and following his presentation, Luttrell will be available for a book signing.

COST: Free and open to the public

CONTACT: 202-737-2300

Marcus Luttrell became a combat-trained Navy SEAL in 2002 and has served in many dangerous Special Operations assignments around the world. He is the author of the New York Times bestseller Lone Survivor, and is a popular corporate and organizational speaker. He lives near Huntsville, Texas.
