    Fallen Hero

    Former Navy Seal Chris Kyle was shot and killed along with a friend at a gun range in Texas while helping a former Marine with PTSD. The former Marine fled in Kyle's truck and was later apprehended.

    Chris Kyle served as a sniper from 1999 to 2009 and did 4 tours in Iraq. His list of accomplisments include:

    2 Silver Stars
    5 Bronze Stars for Valor
    2 Navy & Marine Achievement Medals
    1 Navy & Marine Commendation
    Over 150 confirmed kills (most in US history)
    Instructor @ Craft Training firearm school
    Author of best selling American Sniper book

    Rest in peace brother... you are a true American Hero and you will be missed. He was scheduled to make an appearance this May at my LE/SRT training institute in MI.

    Fallen Hero

    A great tragedy. He died doing what he lived to do - helping his brother warriors.

    Chris and an undisclosed friend were both shot & killed by the Marine on a range in Texas. They were doing a "shooting therapy" session to help him cope with his PTSD.

    Of all the things, over all the years in combat that could have ended his life.... it came from a senseless shooting.

    Very sad situation. I wonder if more details will follow. Our local paper didn't even have the story, but I did read it in the Orlando paper I read since I used to live there.

    I read his book when if first came out. May God keep his soul, may find peace, and may his family find comfort in their memories of him.

    THIS is a MAN that deserves HERO status..... the problem with most of todays society is they consider sports figures and the next pop stars their heros . . imho Russ
