A Nation's Loss

A 25-year-old Iraq war veteran charged with murdering former Navy SEAL and "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle and his friend turned a gun onto the pair while they were at a Texas shooting range, authorities said Sunday.
I've read the book and I recommend it to anybody who likes that sort of topic.
In it, he tempers the standard warrioresque braggadocio by giving credit to the families and wives of those who serve, technology that makes things possible, and the luck of Providence.
In fact, much of his book was written by his dedicated wife, Taya, offering her perspective and struggles from the home front.

By all accounts, Chris Kyle was not just an American hero on the battle field, but off of it as well, using his unique experiences and skill sets to help other veterans recover and cope with their injuries, physical and mental.

He died doing what he had spent such a large part of his life dedicated to: in exemplary service to his nation and it's soldiers.
