4          MARCUS LUTTRELL’S PATRIOT TOUR 2014 

Throughout his life, Marcus Luttrell has been many things – a son, a brother, a husband, a father, a best-selling author, the subject of a forthcoming Hollywood blockbuster, and a brave Navy SEAL.  Throughout it all, there’s been one constant: his love for and belief in his country. Luttrell is an American patriot, and he’s bringing his amazingly true story of determination, valor, and survival to the stage.  For his Patriot Tour, Luttrell hits the road with a number of special guests and performers.  Some are fellow veterans, others have lives that have been profoundly changed by those who have served and sacrificed, and all share a special bond with Luttrell and his sense of duty and patriotism.  Don’t miss out what promises to be an uplifting event like no other—get your tickets to Marcus Luttrell’s Patriot Tour today!
