Navy Seal Sniper Chris Kyle--American Hero!

As a testament to the gratitude of the American people, nearly 7,000 attended Chris Kyle's memorial service today.  Kyle is an American hero for all that he has done for our country as a Navy Seal sniper.  Taya Kyle, his beautiful wife, spoke about him at the service:
Slain ex-Navy SEAL Chris Kyle was a devoted husband, father and friend who will never be forgotten, his widow told mourners at his memorial service Monday.

Taya Kyle said she was broken but that the family will “put one foot in front of the other” to get through their grief. She told her two children that they will remember Chris Kyle’s silly side, Texas twang and prayers they prayed together.

“Chris, there isn’t enough time to tell you everything you mean to me and everything you taught me,” she said through tears.

Its sad that he died trying to help another soldier.  I think thats a testament to the kind of guy he was.

I first heard about Kyle when he was on O'Reilly's show for his book, American Sniper.  I fell in love with him when he had to punch Jesse Ventura for bad-mouthing the war, Bush and America.  Of course, what really broke the camel's back was Ventura saying that the Navy Seals deserved to lose a few guys, and this was all at an event connected with the funeral of some Navy Seals.  Classy!

I had wanted to buy Kyle's book before, but now I can't wait to buy it and read it.

May God bless and comfort Kyle's many family and friends!!
