They count 40 Taliban men down in the village, many more than expected. They begin building their hiding spots. Eventually everyone sleeps, with Dietz on watch. When they get too close, the SEALs pop up and subdue them.
Eventually, after a lot of back and forth, Kristiansen gets to the phone, but the connection has been lost, and no news has been relayed. They get him back, and Murphy presents their options: tie the three up, let them go, or kill them.
After much debate, Murphy, as leader, decides they will pack up, let them go, and make for the peak so they can use the radio to call for a pick-up.
The SEALs slowly start heading up the mountain in full gear. Axe stumbles and sprains his ankle. Murphy pulls out binoculars and scans the town, which appears quiet. Axe has first watch. The foursome preps their weapons and positions.
Dietz and Murphy attempt to communicate using the radio and satellite phone. Dietz gets shot in the hand, Axe in the shoulder. As a group, the four SEALs push right, shelter behind a boulder.
Dietz, Axe, and now also Luttrell get hit. Murphy takes a bullet in the stomach. Under relentless attack, the four decide to fall back and pitch themselves off the foot cliff behind. The RPGs set the trees on fire. Murphy tells them to move left.
Axe and Luttrell begin moving, but Dietz is having trouble. Murphy manages to get him going.
But they can only get so far before they collapse, out of breath. Murphy tries again to get a sat phone signal. Taraq and six fighters come charging, and Axe and Murphy leap off.
Luttrell drops Dietz and falls backward off the cliff. They decide to try and get Dietz, above, and then move down to flat ground. They move out. Murphy and Luttrell attempt to climb the steep pitch, while Axe covers them. Murphy pulls out the sat phone and gives his spare ammo to Luttrell.
He reaches Hasslert at J-Bad and requests air support. Murphy fires at the Taliban soldiers until he himself is killed, as Luttrell falls back to Axe. Two helicopters from Bagram, with Kristensen aboard, take off. The helicopters from J-Bad are grounded at the last moment because the Apaches their air cover are elsewhere. Axe wants to know where Murphy is and if he made the call. Axe and Luttrell climb down to the village as Taraq tracks them from above.
Apaches arrive at J-Bad and the helicopters take off.
Taraq is just feet away. Axe and Luttrell separate, head off in different directions into the woods. Fire fight for both. They hear a helicopter overhead. The second helicopter pilot refuses to put down. Meanwhile, responding to a distress signal put out by Mikey shortly before his death, the military sends a helicopter full of SEALs to assist in the rescue.
However, the Taliban shoot down the helicopter, killing everyone onboard. Luttrell crawls up the side of the mountain, at several points falling back down and further injuring himself.
However, he manages to climb up the mountain and find a waterfall. The three men mean him no harm, however. They are Pashtuns—an ethnic group that lives primarily in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Luttrell explains that the Pashtuns have an ancient custom, lokhay, that requires them to take care of people in need, even if it means risking their own life. The leader of three men, a doctor named Sarawa, has Luttrell carried back to his village, Sabray, and treats his wounds.
In Sabray, Luttrell befriends a man named Mohammad Gulab, the son of the wise elder who runs the village. He leads Luttrell out of the village and into the mountains, where they come face-to-face with Ben Sharmak and his forces.
However, Gulab continues to protect Luttrell. The Rangers have been searching for Luttrell for days, and had begun to think he was dead. They carry Luttrell and Gulab away from the village and back to an American military base. On the military base, Luttrell receives medical treatment for his wounds.
Luttrell travels across the country, visiting the relatives of his deceased teammates and offering his condolences. Arn, Jackson. Retrieved June 19, Copy to Clipboard.
