Born and raised in Houston, Texas, Marcus received hard physical training from his father and a neighbor, a former American soldier. Marcus trained hard, dreaming of a career in the Navy SEALs, and following his college graduation, he joined the Navy SEAL training program, completing it in the early 2000s. In 2003, he was deployed to Iraq, and in 2005, he was sent to Afghanistan on an American mission to tackle the Taliban terrorists. There, he was one of the four Navy SEALs who were part of Operation Red Wing, which claimed the lives of 19 American soldiers. Marcus emerged as the only survivor. Upon his return, he was honored with a Navy Cross. He also wrote a book titled Lone Survivor,’ which inspired a famous Hollywood blockbuster of the same name. Marcus suffered from PTSD and survivor’s guilt. He later laid the foundation of the Lone Survivor Foundation to help U.S. soldiers attain mental, financial, and emotional well-being.
