Serving for 'God and country' – former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell on his new book 'Service'

Marcus Lutrell was the "sole survivor" when a Navy SEAL team was ambushed in Afghanistan. That's the day three seals were killed when their rescue helicopter was downed by an RPG, killing eight more Navy SEALS and eight U.S. Army operations aviators. Less than a year later, Lutrell went back to war, this time in Iraq.

Lutrell talks about the journey in his new book "Service: A Navy SEAL at War" and joins Soledad with his dog Mr. Rigby to explain why he chose to go back to war.
