A true American hero is coming to Lawton. Former U.S. Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell, the man whose heroic actions were portrayed in the book and movie Lone Survivor, will be speaking at the McMahon Auditorium on Sunday, November 6th at 7 p.m.

Luttrell will be appearing on behalf of the Lawton Soccer Club and proceeds from the evening will be used towards repairing and repairing the road that leads to the club's soccer complex off of Lee Boulevard near the I-44. The speech was originally planned for Oklahoma City, but was moved to better accommodate the soccer club.

Tickets for the evening range from $10 to $50, with meet-and-greets also available for purchase. Tickets are available at the McMahon Auditorium Box office, either location of Adventure Travel or at Southwest Chemical Company at 1 SW C Ave. in Lawton.

Shawn Magrath of the Lawton Soccer Club recently appeared on the morning show to talk about the event.
