Just a hint of inspiration...

Just a hint of inspiration...
 
 
Toward the end of this Thanksgiving Day, I offer a rare 2nd post for the holiday.  That's no reflection of any sort of greatness on my part, mind you- as typing away on this thing requires no real valor or courage.
 
 
The subject in the video above is another story, however.
 
 
For those not familiar with his story, Marcus Luttrell is a true war hero.  As the recent movie Lone Survivor chronicled, he was a member of the U.S. Navy's SEAL Team 10.  Luttrell was the sole survivor of Operation Red Wing in the midst of Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan).  He was awarded the Navy Cross for valor during the operation (the 2nd-highest award a member of our military may receive behind only the Congressional Medal of Honor) and received the Purple Heart for his injuries resulting from it.
 
 
Luttrell went on to serve with SEAL Team 5 during Operation Iraqi Freedom before leaving the Navy.
 
 
On November 15th, 2014, Marcus Luttrell spoke to the Alabama Crimson Tide ahead of their game against Mississippi State.  Young men preparing for battle of one sort on a football field were on the edge of their seats and listening to the powerful words of a war hero who put his life on the line for us and nearly lost it on a true battlefield of an altogether different sort.
 
 
The Crimson Tide's reaction?  On the field, they won the game- and now stand as the #1 team in America.  One comment from Senior Tight End Brian Vogler summed it up best when he said that "Honestly, once he got done talking I wanted to run through a brick wall".
 
 
Hoping Marcus Luttrell might provide you with a bit of inspiration as well. For those interested, his website is www.marcusluttrell.com.
