    Widow of SEAL Sniper Chris Kyle Gives Speech at NRA

    I felt this tribute belongs here, in this forum.

    A tribute to a true American Hero in every sense.

    A man of incredible courage, discipline, and selflessness he deserved a better ending to his life than which he received.

    His death has left a void in a great number of people's hearts beyond those of just his family.

    Rest In Peace, Chief. Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

    I really couldn't watch it all. Too many tears.
    I'll have to come back to this at a later time.

    Thank you sir! Rest In Peace and know that we will continue the good fight. I also feel the need to give Dad a sincere Thank You for teaching his son, our fellow American, the values that every red-blooded American kid should learn at a young age.

    It's on my list. I'm still trying to get through Marcus Luttrel's book, "Lone Survivor." I've had to put it down a few times and go back to it later.

    Same thing with Hal Moore's book, "We Were Soldiers Once, and Young." Another gut wrenching read that took a while to finish.

    His book was a great read. I can't wait to read the one coming out in June it sounds good too. He was an amazing guy and will be missed by his country, but most especially by his family.
