These are the US Army Rangers that walked for 46 hours, ran out of water then continued to hydrate with IVs to execute the Operation Red Wings extract of Marcus Luttrell. Without these men there would not have been a Lone Survivor book to be read or movie.

Eleven Navy SEALs and eight Army commandos died June 28, 2005, during a battle between U.S. forces and Taliban fighters in the Konar province of Afghanistan. Only Petty Officer 1st Class Marcus Luttrell survived.
