Former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell was the only survivor of a mission in Afghanistan in 2005, where along with three other SEALS he was tasked with killing a top Taliban commander. His story became the basis of his book, Lone Survivor, which has now been turned into a movie. Luttrell talks with NPR's Rachel Martin about his story.
