How lovely he cares so much! Within moments of Hugo Chavez’s passing, Barack Obama releases a statement. Yet, it’s been a little more than a month since a real American hero- Chris Kyle’s tragic death, and not a single word has been spoken! What a disgrace!
From The White House:
At this challenging time of President Hugo Chavez’s passing, the United States reaffirms its support for the Venezuelan people and its interest in developing a constructive relationship with the Venezuelan government. As Venezuela begins a new chapter in its history, the United States remains committed to policies that promote democratic principles, the rule of law, and respect for human rights.
America honors Chris Kyle, known as “America’s Deadliest Sniper“, who was killed on February 2, with a Memorial Service at Cowboys Stadium on Monday. The former Navy SEALs funeral will be held on Tuesday in Midlothian, and he will be buried at Texas State Cemetery in Austin.
Todd and I are in Dallas today to attend Chris Kyle’s memorial and funeral service. I find it sad to see that flags aren’t flying at half staff for this American hero. We’re surrounded today by American patriots here in Texas – by Chris’ fellow veterans and active duty warriors. In honor of them, I hope our commander in chief pays his respects in some gesture of condolence for their comrade in arms who sacrificed so much to keep him and all of us safe.
We may never know to what extent Chris kept us free or how many lives he saved by his brave actions in the line of fire. But his fellow warriors know how important he was.
Indeed, Chris Kyle was a brave man, and he will be honored by hundreds of Patriot Guard Riders, who will stand at the flag line at today’s Memorial Service, and will lead the funeral procession tomorrow, where Chris Kyle, known by his fellow SEAL Team as “The Legend”, will make his final ride on this earth. The Patriot Guard Riders expect that more than 1,000 riders could join them tomorrow to honor this fallen hero, who stands out as a hero in a category all his own.
“This is a very unique veteran. This man is a hero, over and over.”
Sadly, members of the hate group Westboro Baptist Church will be picketing the memorial, stating, that it is ‘beautiful’ that God ‘executed’ Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. One would have to assume that there is a special place in hell for these people who call themselves “Christians”!
Chris Kyle. Today America remembered a true hero. He was not a famous sport figure who makes too much money to carry a ball of some sort down a field or court. Neither was he a famous musician, making millions upon millions for lip syncing his way into mainstream America. He was a- no, The Legend– in his own rights. Today America remembered the man known as America’s Deadliest Sniper.
On February 2, Chris Kyle, a former Navy SEAL, was gun downed in cold blooded murder while helping a fellow former soldier. That soldier turned on him, and took his life, as well as the life of Chris’ friend, Chad Littlefield.
The Memorial Service for Chris Kyle, which was expected to attract thousands, was was held at Cowboys Stadium. It is estimated that nearly 7,000 people attended the Service, including former Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin.
As an observer, one could not help but laugh in one moment, and cry in the next moment, as family and friends remembered the life of the man, the husband, the father, the son, the friend, the hero.
Chris’ wife Taya Kyle spoke of the man she loved in a down-to-earth, real way, refusing to “romanticize” Chris in his death. The love and devotion she spoke of for him, as well as from him, was heart wrenchingly beautiful. She made it clear that Chris Kyle was not perfect- he had his faults- but he was a blessing in her life.
His friend spoke of his mischievous, good-heart in a way that made you wish you had known him.
Those who served with him spoke of the man, the myth, The Legend that is Chris Kyle. What started out as a joke- the nickname of The Legend- became a reality in the life of Chris Kyle, as he was one to never back down from a challenge. He was there for the good times and the bad.
Many who attended today’s Memorial Service did not know Chris Kyle personally, but attended to honor “a brother in arms.”
America salutes you, Chris Kyle! Hooyah!

Known as “the devil” by the enemy, and feared so much by Iraqi insurgents he had a bounty placed on his head, he was know as “the legend” by his Navy Seal brothers. A true hero, Kyle was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, and one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation.
