‘Lone Survivor’ Turned My Patriotic Meter up to 11
I’ll start by saying that this was an awesome movie. Acting was great, effects were stunning, and story left me shaking in my seat. Which brings me to why I am writing this post, the story, though how unbelievable it is, is true. I knew this going in of course, but I had no idea how hard it would hit once the ending credits rolled. This was a story of true acts of heroism. Iv’e always had an immeasurable amount of respect and admiration for the men and women in the armed forces, but this experience has opened my eyes wider than they have ever been. With every petty and stupid news story that gets blown up on the news (and on here sometimes too, I do admit) there are battles being fought ,and lives being lost, all around the world that go unnoticed. Just when i thought I couldn’t love my county more, I am completely blown away by the story of Operation Red Wings.
