The Jimmy Rane Foundation is pleased to
announce that Marcus Luttrell, a decorated Navy
SEAL and best-selling author of Lone Survivor,
will serve as banquet guest speaker for the 14th
annual Jimmy Rane Charity Golf Tournament.
Marcus Luttrell’s 2007 #1 New York Times
best-selling book, Lone Survivor, tells the
harrowing story of four Navy SEALs
who journeyed into the mountainous border
of Afghanistan and Pakistan on Operation Redwing.
An unparalleled motivational story of survival, the
book is also a moving tribute to the friends and
teammates who did not make it off the mountain.
A powerful testament to the courage, integrity,
patriotism and community that forged these
American heroes, Lone Survivor is an incredible
account of teamwork, fortitude and modern warfare.
In January 2014, Luttrell’s amazing story made the leap to the big screen with the
blockbuster film, Lone Survivor, directed by Peter Berg (Battleship, Hancock) and starring
Mark Wahlberg (The Fighter, The Departed) as Luttrell. The film celebrated a historic
open, earning the second biggest January debut of all time.
As an inspirational speaker, Luttrell takes his audiences from the rigors of SEAL training
and what it takes to join the America’s elite fighting force, to the battle on the mountain,
into his family’s experience of community support and generosity, and back to his own
incredible story of survival and grace. In powerful narrative, he weaves a rich account of
courage and sacrifice, honor and patriotism, community and destiny that audiences will
find both wrenching and life-affirming.
