3 The team is inserted into the Hindu Kush region of Afghanistan, where they make a trek through the mountains. Here, they begin to encounter communications problems, which would play a critical role in the following events. Upon arriving at their designated location, the SEALs are accidentally discovered by an elderly shepherd and two teenage goat herders. After a brief debate, Luttrell convinces the others that they will incite backlash if they kill the three herders. The team decides to release the herders and abort the mission, but before they can escape, they are discovered by Taliban forces. Although they manage to kill several Taliban soldiers, they find themselves heavily outnumbered and at significant tactical disadvantage. Each of the men suffers serious injuries during the firefight, and in an attempt to flee from the insurgents, they jump off the edge of a cliff.Hindu Kushbacklash

6 Marcus Luttrell (The movie is based on his story) appears in the movie playing a small role. At about the 12:30 mark of the movie he's the SEAL that spills the coffee and tells the rookie to clean it up. Marcus is credited as 'Navy Seal (uncredited)'. His character is 'Frank' or 'Frankie'. He appears again on the helicopter which was sent to rescue the team and subsequently shot down, killing all aboard. Though it is not mentioned in the movie Luttrell was personally awarded the Navy Cross by (then) President George W. Bush. Lieutenant Michael Murphy would be awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously. Director Peter Berg read the memoir alone in one sitting at a locked conference room during the production of Hancock (2008).
