As Coronado is home to the U.S. Navy SEAL's and their training camp, I have always appreciated what these men put themselves through. Not that I can say I fully understand as I would barely last a day...if that even. Maybe an hour… But after having seen ‘Lone Survivor’ I have a newfound appreciation for these men. And this movie is the type of film that sticks with you.
The intro to the movie is old video footage and photos of the SEAL's in training. Every single one of those shots takes place on Coronado’s very own beach. Yes, this is where they go through months of gruelling camp. I know this, yet it’s crazy to see it!
While I watched these fighters battle for their lives, I couldn’t help but wonder about the families of these guys. Those partners and children must be some of the strongest people in the world. So what I really wanted to say about the entire movie is that my heart goes out to all those who have lost their family and friends in times of war.
