Fox News: Republican Gov. Greg Abbott says he is declaring Feb. 2 as “Chris Kyle Day” in Texas to honor the late U.S. serviceman whose life is depicted in the blockbuster film “American Sniper.”
Abbott made the announcement Friday while speaking to a Texas Veterans of Foreign Wars Convention in Austin. Hundreds of veterans in a hotel ballroom greeted the news with a standing ovation.

Kyle’s hometown was the Fort Worth suburb of Midlothian. He was 37 when he was killed in 2013 at a North Texas gun range. A former Marine charged in his death goes on trial in Stephenville next month.
Abbott said the state will commemorate Kyle’s life on Monday.
Kyle did four tours in Iraq and is considered to be the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history.
American Sniper was number one at the box office again this past weekend! Check out my movie review here.

Iraq didn’t do 9/11.

Yeah right. If a country invaded the USA under a false pretense (but really wanted our Wisconsin cheese), and a single sniper killed thousands of us as we defend our homeland- would he be a hero to you as well? The real hero’s are those that defend their nation against tyranny. Propaganda run amuck and praise for a murderer is proof of your enslavement and satanic possession.
