It's reasonable for protective dads to have high expectations for their daughter's boyfriends: polite, caring, personable and not too many mug shots.

Marcus Luttrell, the father of two-year-old Addie, has a list that's a little bit more demanding: roping a tornado, bottling up a hurricane and putting out a forest fire with a squirt gun.

That's what you get when your father is a retired Navy SEAL whose experience in Afghanistan was chronicled in the movie "Lone Survivor."

Don't mess with this dad!

Luttrell, a 6'5 250-pound retired Navy SEAL, received the Navy Cross, the second highest military award, after facing Taliban fighters during Operation Red Wing in 2005. 

Luttrell wrote a note to any potential suitors on his Facebook page warning them they'd have to get the approval of his friends, who include an MMA fighter, boxers, police officers and prison guards. 

That's step one in the dating process. 


"Then he will have to do the same thing with all my teammates while they show him the team armory," he wrote.

The post has been shared more than 4,300 times. Luttrell said he's even thinking of making a chastity belt with the words "ask father for key" engraved on it.

"Look forward to seeing the first candidate in about 16 years," he concluded his message. "I'll be waiting."

Addie, just talk to Hoda: Sounds like her strict Egyptian dad would get along just fine with Luttrell.
