Freedom Daily Exclusive:
We were at Barrett-Jackson’s Auto Auction which was holding a fundraiser for Marcus Luttrell’s Lone Survivor Foundation, today. Luttrell helps wounded veterans. We met up with Luttrell and asked him what happened to the guys who killed his dog.
Luttrell has said that there were two other men involved, aside from the two who were charged for the crime. The founder of Freedom Daily, triple-amputee Iraq War vet, Senior Airman Brian Kolfage, spoke to him at the fundraiser.
He told Kolfage “he got them.” He didn’t explain what that meant, but we can assume it wasn’t pleasant for the dog killers.
The good news is, $150,000 was raised for wounded vets, just by selling one car.
Marcus Luttrell was the lone survivor of Operation Red Wings in Afghanistan. Three of his Navy SEAL brothers were killed, and Luttrell was severely injured. A movie about the harrowing ordeal was made and titled “Lone Survivor.”
Luttrell and the three other SEALs were on a recon patrol hunting for a militia leader in northeastern Afghanistan. Shortly after fast roping in, the team was ambushed. An MH-47 helicopter sent to rescue the men was shot down. Including the three SEALs who were killed, 19 Americans were killed that day. Luttrell sustained multiple bone fractures, a broken back, and numerous shrapnel wounds.
After his rescue, he was given a Yellow Labrador to assist in his rehabilitation. He named her DASY. “Each letter of the name “DASY” represents one of the members of his team—Danny Dietz, Matthew “Axe” Axelson, Southern boy (Marcus), and Michael ‘Yankee’ Murphy.” Then the unconscionable happened. Thugs shot and killed his beloved DASY right in front of his Texas home.
Luttrell explained to the Houston Chronicle: “I could tell she tried to get away because there was a blood trail,” Luttrell recalled in a phone interview Wednesday. “When I saw she was dead, the only thing that popped into my head was, ‘I’ve got to take these guys out.’ ”
The former Navy SEAL set out in pursuit of DASY’s killers. Speeds of the chase exceeding 110 mph.
Listen as Luttrell calls 9-11 as he chases the scumbags, telling the dispatcher he has two 9 mm Berettas, and to get someone out there because there’s going to be a gunfight. His calm, cool demeanor no doubt came from his SEAL training, and what he endured in Afghanistan.
Two of the suspects were caught that night. Luttrell was there. They threatened to kill him upon their arrest.
“On March 7, 2012, Alfonso Hernandez was given the maximum sentence of two years in a state jail for the felony charge of animal cruelty and fined $1,000. After his guilty plea and testimony against Hernandez, Michael John Edmonds was sentenced to five years probation and fined $1,000 for the same offense.”
