10 At a time we could use many more like him, his loss is made even more significant.

13 Godspeed and God bless. May our country again be worthy of such men.


And good for Jerry Jones for volunteering use of Cowboys Stadium. I mean that with all sincerity, good for him.

17 Eternal Father, strong to save,

Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,

Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep

Its own appointed limits keep;

Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,

For those in peril on the sea!

20 This story is so maddening. A great guy serves overseas at great peril and comes home to be assassinated by a scum bag. He deserved better. What is going on with this case? Is a perp in custody?

RIP Chris, I have no words adequate to express my gratitude.

Posted by: navybrat at February 11, 2013 02:32 PM (Z4w7Z)

21 Almost all combat vets put together something in writing in the event of their death. I wish I knew what Kyle had written so I could honor and mourn him as he would have wanted.

God rest his soul. American hero.

23 Chris Kyle is a hero. RIP. And my deepest condolences to his family, from whom he was stolen by an evildoer.

I haven't been following this story closely, but my immediate question is how they were able to secure Cowboy Stadium for the service.

If the team itself had something to do with that, then I take back all the mean things I ever said about them.

20 -

I'm not going to argue your characterization of the shooter as a scumbag, but he was also a Veteran, with obvious issues. That's why Mr. Kyle was with him, and while it may seem like a severe injustice an irony that he would have faced the danger he did, only to come home and be shot in the back, the reality of it is that this was a continuation of the mission. Mr. Kyle probably knew the risks of dealing with a volatile ex-combat soldier, and he took on those risks, just like he did in his military service.

It's a hard job, obviously, and Mr. Kyle is just the sort of man who was continuing to serve, long after he took off the uniform.

I was halfway through it when he was killed. Took me a while to be able to pick it back up.

It's excellent. A real page turner. His wife, Taya, wrote pieces for it as well.

Breaks my heart such an incredible man is mowed down by a POS. Someone over at This Ain't Hell said his killer never ventured outside the wire during deployment, that he was a loser druggie. So the PTSD is bullshit.

Posted by: Jane D'oh at February 11, 2013 02:47 PM (UOM48)

29 RIP Chris Kyle. God bless your wife, kids and the rest of your family and friends.

And thank you Jerry Jones. That was a wonderful gesture.

30 Has anyone read Kyle's book? Was it any good?

I've read the first chapter. I didn't have money to pick it up at the time, and I haven't been able to find a copy since.

The first chapter was actively good. Most of the time these things are "fine" or "good - considering." No. This one was actively good.

Such a senseless loss.
God Bless him. May he rest in peace.

It's my understanding that Jerry Jones volunteered use of Cowboys Stadium.

Posted by: alexthechick - SMOD. Team Stompy. at February 11, 2013 02:56 PM (VtjlW)

33 They're singing the Navy Hymn now. I may lose it soon.

God bless Chris Kyle. God bless his family. God bless America.

34 RIP Chris Kyle.....this country was lucky to have you, even for a short time....

That may be the nicest gesture ever to come from the Cowboys.

Rest in Peace.

38 I'm crying over Taya. I believe that was Chris' younger brother standing next to her.

Posted by: Jane D'oh at February 11, 2013 03:38 PM (UOM48)

39 I don't know how she managed that....I'd have been in a puddle.

Taps AND bagpipes.....I just grabbed the whole box.

Posted by: Tami at February 11, 2013 03:49 PM (X6akg)

42
Where do we get such men as this? God bless Chris Kyle's family. R.I.P.


Between the widow speaking, Amazing Grace, the bagpipes, the playing of Taps, and the removal of the casket, my screen is super blurry.

Posted by: runningrn at February 11, 2013 03:50 PM (Ag5D2)

43 Damn. I'm just so brokenhearted. I've got to finish the book tonight so my husband can read it. It's an incredible story.

Posted by: Jane D'oh at February 11, 2013 03:55 PM (UOM48)

Rest in Peace, Noble Warrior.
May God bless and keep your wife and children.

Posted by: Sam Adams at February 11, 2013 03:57 PM (4wXE8)

45 Wow, almost couldn't make it through his wife talking.

R.I.P.


Posted by: mesablue at February 11, 2013 03:58 PM (3ZdkQ)

46
Oh, and to Ron Paul....
Everything I have to say to and about you is far too profane and vile to be included in this thread.

Posted by: Sam Adams at February 11, 2013 03:59 PM (4wXE8)

47
Taya's eulogy just ripped my heart out.

Rest in Peace, Chris Kyle.

Posted by: Jaws at February 11, 2013 04:04 PM (4I3Uo)

48 I am unashamed to say that I let the tears flow freely.

They are a cheep homage to the many tremendous souls given for this country and her higher ideals, of which Chris was a sterling example. I'll never regret or deny a single tear shed for the loss of such honorable warriors. We should all cry ourselves dry in remorse and pride.

Hoohaa!

49 May he RIP and his family and friends be comforted in the knowledge that many Americans are thankful for his heroism and sacrifice.

Posted by: ChristyBlinky at February 11, 2013 07:30 PM (baL2B)

50 I have a fantasy that Rand duct-taped his evil old man's wrinkled old ass to a chair and forced him to watch the memorial.
