She added: 'Let's show them what the United States of America looks like up close and personal,' she said.
Retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell became famous after his harrowing experience during Operation Red Wings in Afghanistan, which became the subject of the Oscar-nominated film "Lone Survivor." Recently, the military veteran has made headlines again for a Facebook status he posted about a very different topic -- fatherhood.
Next time – if I am dumb enough to get myself in a similar predicament once again, that is – I may not be that lucky. Even if you don’t have a recreational habit of dating people with telltale signs of psychiatric disorders, you don’t know what dangers may be lurking around the corner.

Do you have rules for who your kids can and can not date?
Marcus Luttrell, the retired Navy SEAL whose memoir Lone Survivor was made into an Oscar-nominated movie starring Mark Wahlberg, does.
He asks that anyone who wants to date his daughter should, “Paint the house, mend some fence, cut the lawn, rope a tornado, bottle up a hurricane, and put out a forest fire w/ a squirt gun.” But the heart of his message is a very serious one, and it is, I believe, why the post has become so popular.
At it’s core he’s talking about control: restricting whom his daughter can see based on fear that she’s going to get hurt or make a choice that he doesn’t agree with, a sentiment he wraps in the guise of fatherly love but which is actually disturbing and sexist. First, he says that any boy — and his list assumes that his daughter will want to date a boy when she begins dating, though at the age of 2, it’s far too early to tell her sexual preferences — will have to meet and get the blessing of all of his Navy SEAL teammates while they show him the armory.
