Lone Survivor - E-bok - Marcus Luttrell, Patrick Robinson () | BokusTo offset the cost of my medical school training, I chose to accept a scholarship from the military. My service in the military started at the completion of medical school. Since my father served in the United States Air Force for over 28 years, it was an easy choice of which military service to choose. That choice to accept the scholarship proved to be one of the best decisions I ever made! Despite growing up in the military, I really did not know what to expect as I transitioned into becoming a general surgeon for the USAF. I knew there would be travel.

Both involve highly trained soldiers operating in very small groups in remote enemy territory. The mountains of Afghanistan we see in the film are very like the area of Kenya where British soldiers train today. The Seals face a moral dilemma: kill a group of Afghans in order not to compromise their mission, or let them go unharmed. It's a familiar situation. Not only is Lone Survivor based on Marcus Luttrell's account of a real Seals mission, there have been a number of similar incidents over the years.
