Saw the show & really enjoyed it. We can never repay the soldiers that sacrifice so much to protect our freedoms as stated in my signature below.
It is quite extraordinary that the tribal custom in that area of the world requires them to protect their guests at all costs. if it wasn't for them, there would not have been a lone survivor. He returned to Afghanistan to visit with the man who was responsible for saving his life.
My daughter just surprised me with the book. Will be interesting to compare the written version with the movie. The books are usually better. This will be the first time I've read the book after the movie. Should be an interesting read.
