Glenn speaks with Marcus Luttrell about his upcoming tour

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On radio this morning, Glenn spoke to former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell about his upcoming Patriot Tour. Marcus, the bestselling author of Lone Survivor, will be bringing his incredible story to audiences around the country – making stops in Houston, Austin, Dallas, Salt Lake City, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, and Pensacola. Get all the details HERE.

“What is the topic of your tour,” Glenn asked on radio this morning.

“It’s called the Patriot Tour,” Marcus said. “It started out kind of an idea between me and Chris Kyle and we wanted to get on the road, share our stories with the general masses. A lot of times we get up and talk to people in a private environment, and he and I felt like that would be a good idea, to get out there and kind of tell a little bit of what we did, how we did it, just to let people know, kind of, fire them up. Once we lost [Chris] that kind of buckled me to my knees a little bit, but I shook it off and keep on, you know. Do it for him, instead of with him this time.”

Before he kicks off his tour, Marcus will be attending Glenn’s Man in the Moon event. Glenn is in the process of putting together a small museum that will be on display over the Man in the Moon weekend, and Marcus donated the uniform he wore during Operation Red Wing.

“You will see a movie coming out in late December, and then in January called Lone Survivor, and it is the story of Marcus and his team,” Glenn said. “One of the greatest stories you could ever read of heroism, and Marcus was lucky enough to live through it, to be able to tell the story of what his teammates did, but this is his actual helmet that he was wearing in combat.”

Remarkably, Marcus lost the helmet during the battle, but it was returned to him two years later. He knew it was his because of the Texas state flag he had on the back of it.

The uniform and pack he was wearing will also be on display. The uniform, which had been brand new, is now reduced to little more than tatters.

“It doesn’t have all the blood on it, but it will give you some idea of what the battle was like,” Glenn said. “These were the brand new pants he was wearing when he went out on operation – look at this?”

“Torn to shreds,” Pat said. “That’s how you describe it.”

Glenn noted the unusual smell the clothing had, to which Marcus responded, “Smells like death.”

The items Marcus has donated to the museum are particularly poignant not only because of the lives lost that day but because it tangibly illustrates just how high a price we pay for our freedom.

“If you happen to be in any of the cities Marcus is going to be touring in, make sure you go and see him and listen to the stories,” Glenn said. “Let me rephrase this, because it makes him uncomfortable, listen to the stories about heroes from somebody who has walked the walk. Marcus Luttrell. And you can find out more about it at MarcusLuttrell.com. Thank you so much, brother.”

    As a veteran, I would like to remind everyone of the dangers of glorifying the military at a time when the civil authorities are corrupt and held in contempt by the people.  Learn the lesson of Rome and Caesar.  Our founders warned us of the danger of a standing army.

    “A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defence against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people.” — James Madison

    Is it ever at all possible to read ONE story on the Blaze w/o any obvious ridiculous spelling mistakes?!?!?!?!  ” Loan Survivor ” is the name of the movie? Really?  He was a Seal not a banker.  Nearly every story on here has spelling/grammatical errors.  If you want to be taken seriously in the media how about paying attention to what you put out.

  • Kyla

     I think YOU misread it is LONE survivor.

    Boy is that the best you can do? Guess we found a liberal English Teacher reading the story here…… Is that your best attack?… “Loan survivor”….. yep it’s speled rong!……. I guess heads will roll for that one…..  have you ever looked at a News paper? maybe you should be a proof reader for the liberal press…. then maybe someone might take IT seriously…….  Of course you had the advantage of the spell checker on DISQUS so you won’t have and spelling errors to look any more silly or pitiful than you already are….  OH and yes I purposely spelled “speled rong” that way for the humor of it….

    By the way, it’s SEAL, not Seal. Pluralized, it’s SEALs.

     Not that it matters..but spc59 is correct. In the article it says Loan Survivor..

  • Anonymous

     Read down to the 15th line when they are talking about the movie. “Loan Survivor” still not corrected.

    The point of “loan” is that his life is now borrowed.  I guess it takes one to know one.

     One counterpoint is posse comatatus

    It IS Loan Survivor…look it up before you post something…

  • Sean Davis

     Unfortunately, Posse Comitatus was effectively neutered about six years ago.

    Read Karl Marlantes’ books, especially “Matterhorn”. .

     First of all with a moniker of KABAR2 I would assume you are a current or past Marine. If so, thank you for your service.  You have me however completely wrong.  I am a voting Conservative since Reagan’s 2nd term.  I have been a loyal Glenn Beck listener since his big issue was the Terri Schiavo case.  I am also a daily reader of the Blaze as well as Drudge, Breitbart, Jerusalem Post etc.  It is just extremely frustrating to find the constant spelling/grammatical errors on The Blaze site.  As Conservatives we have to do a better job than the usual Lame Stream Media.  If one of us misspeaks, it gives the Left the proof of the lack of intellect they accuse us of. Biden or any of his ilk can say the most inane thing and get away with it.  We HAVE to do a better job.  My comment was out of frustration at yet another mistake (since corrected) regarding an American Hero’s story (which I have also read) and not an indictment of The Blaze in general.

     Maybe you should do the same..I’m looking right at the book…and it’s Lone Survivor…

  • Anonymous

     That would make sense I guess…if that was the actual name of the book..

    Amazing!!!

         I still understood YOUR point, was able to figure out what YOU were trying to say, and was still willing to ignore your TWO GRAMMATICAL ERRORS AND SENTENCE FRAGMENT!!!

      I mean, it’s a miracle I was able to understand it at all when you didn’t even indent the beginning of your paragraph.

         Grow up please.

         I, for one, am glad he is spending money where it counts and not overpaying a room full of executive editor to ensure YOUR hypercritical English protocols are not offended. A simple email to the web master would be enough. You should thank your personal God every day for all the things he and the gang get right. He just might save YOUR country…

    Frankly it’s an honest mistake. These days it’s probably as difficult to survive a loan as it was difficult to be the lone survivor in those circumstances ;P
