RIP CHRIS KYLE

America's deadliest sniper. RIP brother.
Story
He never disclosed exactly how many enemy combatants he shot, but the Pentagon certified more than 150 of his kills during four combat tours of Iraq. Some news reports credited him with as many as 255. His confirmed kills exceeded the exploits of legendary Marine Carlos Hathcock, whom Kyle called "the best sniper in the world." Hathcock had 93 confirmed kills in Vietnam.

In all, he was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor and two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals.

"I don't care about the medals," Kyle told the Star-Telegram in a 2012 interview. "I didn't do it for the money or the awards. I did it because I felt like it was something that needed to be done and it was honorable. I loved

Wherever somebody’s strugglin’ to be free,

Re: RIP CHRIS KYLE

RIP and thank you for your service and sacrifices. His book is one of the best I have ever read. Be interesting to see more details of what happened, he seemed like the type who wouldn't let his guard down and was aware of his surroundings at all times. IIRC he now owned a security company.

Re: RIP CHRIS KYLE

It's a shame. He is an American hero. Wonder how the disgusting left will spin this? A salute to Chris, and all of you who serve that the world has never heard of.

Your freedom to be you, includes my freedom to be free from you.

Re: RIP CHRIS KYLE

Reports say the shooter was a PTSD afflicted vet. It smells a little fishy, but who knows.

Re: RIP CHRIS KYLE

RIP. I heard they had a reward on his head, wonder if his murder has some ties to terrorists

My ability to remember lyrics from songs of the 60's far exceed my ability to remember why I walked into the kitchen

Birch, if that is true...they are the dumbest people in the world.

For every SEAL they kill, another will step in his place.
