Marcus Luttrell's Lone Survivor, the 2007 #1 New York Times best-selling book and 2013
major motion picture starring Mark Wahlberg, tells the harrowing, emotionally raw account
and motivational story of his survival and the deaths of his comrades-in-arms in Operation
Redwing, a mission to gather intelligence on Taliban leadership in Afghanistan.
After this experience, Marcus returned home to his ranch in Texas, the center of his post-combat recovery and restoration, and in 2010 established the Lone Survivor Foundation.
THE LONE SURVIVOR FOUNDATION'S MISSION
Today, the Lone Survivor Foundation restores, empowers, and renews hope for our wounded service members and their families through health, wellness, and therapeutic support. Overseas deployments and combat action can take a serious toll on everyone involved - from the men and women on the front lines to the friends and families who wait patiently for their loved ones to return home. America's Armed Forces are asked to perform at exceptionally high standards in the most demanding circumstances and that service demands incredible sacrifice, dedication, and in some cases debilitating personal transformation. Transitioning to post-military life, whether wounded in combat or simply adjusting to the civilian sector, will often cause difficulty for the service member and his or her family. The unfortunate reality for many service members and their families is that life changes after the loved one returns home and the effects of their experiences begin to manifest in negative ways. In short, the normalcy of life prior to their service may have been lost forever. The Lone Survivor Foundation is here to help America's wounded service members and their families adjust to the effects of their experiences and help them transition into what may be looked at as their 'new normal' - providing an understanding and acceptance of who they are as a person, a family, and a community.
SUPPORT THROUGH RETREATS AND THERAPEUTIC ACTIVITIES
