The story of Chris Kyle, one of the most lethal snipers in U.S. Military history is full of patriotism, self-sacrifice and heroism. His story is well-known. He was one of the many who served, suffered and sacrificed for our beloved country.

They were among the best of us. Boys who grew into men, and who sometimes never made it back home. They stood tall for us. For all of us. We can’t forget them.

A memorial for slain Navy Seal and “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle has been unveiled in the West Texas city where he was born in 1974. The monument was unveiled on July 28, 2016, and was privately-funded. Chris Kyle’s memorial includes plaza, bronze statue.
