It was only a few days ago that I watched Lone Survivor, and in all honesty it was more powerful than any other war movie I’d ever seen in my life. It wasn’t just that it was all based on a true story, about Operation Red Wings. It was how realistic the directors and actors made it look, from the terrain of the mountains and Afghanistan to the conflicts that the soldiers had to face daily, especially with how vulnerable soldiers can be up in those mountains which basically serve as training grounds for the Taliban.
None of us have to be in the military to appreciate the fine effort and ultimate sacrifice from the men and women in uniform who serve our country every day, but that movie honestly gave me new-found appreciation for the work they do. Every day, they give their lives to preserve, protect, and defend our country and our rights. To the families of those who lost their lives serving our country, I send my deepest condolences. Thank you all for your services.
