I was fortunate enough to meet the deadliest American sniper; Chris Kyle and his wife, Taya in my hometown this past weekend.

 

Those of you who do not know of Chris Kyle he was a native Odessa, Texan who learned to shoot during his childhood hunting trips with his father, prior to joining the Navy he also was a champion saddle-bronc rider.

 

From 1999 to 2009 Chris recorded the most Sniper kills in the United States military history. While deployed after 9/11 the Iraqi soldiers were so fearful of him they started calling him "al-Shaitan" which means "The Devil".

 

He was apart of SEAL Team 3, he served four combat tours during Operation Iraqi Freedom. During one of his tours Chris did a personal record of a 2,100-yard kill shot outside Baghdad; in Fallujah.

 

The Pentagon his recorded MORE than 150 of his kills! Chris was awarded 2 Silver stars, 5 Bronze, 2 Navy & Marine Corp Achievement Medals, 1 Navy and Marine Corps Commendation medal, and also The Grateful Nation Award by the Jewish.

 

After retiring from the Navy, he now runs Craft international; A firm that provides military and law enforcement sniper training also private security protection.

 

He is truly an American Hero.

You obviously haven't seen your boss at work with pictures. Brutal. Anyway, sounds like a fun challenge, but I have to be nice to the women folk.
