Marcus Luttrell Partners with Veterans United



Veterans United Home Loans has partnered with Marcus Luttrell, the man who inspired the No. 1 movie in the country, “Lone Survivor,” to educate veterans and service members on the benefits of the VA Home Loan program.

Helping Veterans Achieve the Dream of Homeownership

Marcus Luttrell is nothing if not completely dedicated to his fellow service members and veterans. That fact is evident through his retelling of the events surrounding Operation Red Wings, an epic fight between his Navy Seals team and the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2005.

His commitment to those who served did not stop when he left the battlefield, however. Luttrell remains an advocate for veterans, especially those who have returned from the War on Terror. Working to ensure every veteran can take advantage of the benefits earned through service, Luttrell has partnered with Veterans United Home Loans. With the help of Veterans United, Luttrell is spreading the word about how a VA Loan can open the doors of homeownership to our nation’s heroes.

“Veterans United Home Loans truly appreciates the sacrifices service members and veterans make in order to serve our country. That’s why I’m proud to support Veterans United.”

Texas native Marcus Luttrell has been forging a unique path for most of his life.

While most children are dreaming of baseball and long summers, at the young age of 14, Luttrell began an earnest path toward becoming a United States Navy SEAL. Along with his twin brother, Morgan, Marcus started his own training regimen that would go a long way in helping him reach his dream.

In 1999, Luttrell first attempted Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL (BUD/S) training in Coronado, Calif., but his graduation was delayed due to a fractured femur early on in training. Undeterred, Marcus would eventually graduate as an 18D, or team medic, in 2001.

A mere four years later, Marcus and his team, SEAL Team 10, would be tasked with a mission to kill or capture Ahmad Shah (nom de guerre Mohammad Ismail), a high-ranking Taliban leader responsible for killings in eastern Afghanistan and the Hindu-Kush mountains. Marcus’s life and the lives of his fellow SEAL’s would change dramatically after Operation Red Wings.

After being medically discharged, Luttrell would release his first book, The Lone Survivor, a few years later, which quickly rose to the top of the New York Times bestseller list in 2012. That same year, Marcus also launched the Lone Survivor Foundation, became a key spokesman for The Boot Campaign, and more importantly, started a family with his wife, Melanie.

Merely the beginning for Marcus, he has since released a second book, Service, and simultaneously became a public speaker and figure for organizations such as Veterans United Home Loans. Marcus joined forces with Veterans United in an effort to raise awareness about the VA home loan benefit available to service members and veterans. A man of strong faith and values, Marcus found that Veterans United’s values were similarly dedicated to the betterment of military families; that of making the American dream of homeownership a reality for those who so bravely served.
