Anne Sorock observes:
Former Navy Seal Chris Kyle, who was killed at a Texas gun range on February 8, was laid to rest Tuesday at the Texas State Cemetery. On Monday, 7,000 people attended a memorial service in his honor at the Cowboys Stadium.
Many people are saying Kyle was the deadliest sniper in history, and he was known as “the legend” to his friends, and the “Devil of Ramadi” to his (and our) enemies. He was the author of the book, “American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in US Military History.”
Kyle and his family have given so much for our country, as have so many other heroes before them; and yet, President Obama failed to mention him in his State of the Union last night, the same day as his funeral.
Sarah Palin, however, recognized his sacrifice on the morning of the memorial service, which she attended with her husband...
We salute you, Chris Kyle. We salute you and thank you. May God bless you and your family.
