Marcus Luttrell, a Navy SEAL awarded the Navy Cross for heroism in 2006 after he was the only member of his team to survive a 2005 fight with the Taliban in Afghanistan, now has some added closure.
To help him heal from the trauma Luttrell experienced in the firefight that left 19 of his brothers in arms dead, Luttrell was given a Labrador retriever. Three years ago, his service dog, DASY (an acronym of the initials of Luttrell’s slain team members) was murdered.
Late last week the two Huntsville, TX men accused of killing DASY were found guilty of killing the war hero’s dog.
“I saw my dog in a ditch and two men standing outside the car,” Luttrell said. “I could hear them laughing.”
The men are scheduled to be sentence in February.
