In the summer of 2005, a four-man Navy SEAL team consisting of Michael Murphy, Danny Dietz, Matthew Axelson and Marcus Luttrell departed for a reconnaissance mission high in the Hindu Kush Mountains near the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. The team’s target was Ahmad Shah, a local terrorist leader with close ties to Bin Laden who led a group of insurgents referred to as the “Mountain Tigers”. Luttrell’s team came under attack and five days after insertion, Luttrell was the only SEAL to make it out alive.
While Luttrell’s team were engaged in a firefight with the Taliban a call for help was given by Michael Murphy so a quick reaction force (QRF) could come out and provide them with reinforcements. One of the MH-47 helicopters that carried part of the QRF was struck by an RPG-7 rocket propelled grenade, causing the helicopter to immediately plummet to the ground, killing all 8 160th Army Special Operations Aviators and all 8 Navy SEALs who were passengers.
