POWERFUL: Visiting The American Sniper’s Grave At The Texas State Cemetery

Ben Philippi visits Chris Kyle’s grave at the Texas State Cemetery, along with some others who went to pay their respects.

Chris Kyle‘s grave at the Texas State Cemetery is little more than a simple marker, a few flags, flowers and a short note thanking him for his service.

Kyle, the former Navy SEAL sniper, was laid to rest in February 2013, about a week after Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield were murdered by a veteran whom they were helping. More than 7,000 people attended Kyle’s funeral at Cowboy’s stadium.

Deemed the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history with 160 confirmed kills. Kyle served four tours in the Iraq War and was awarded several commendations for acts of heroism and meritorious service in combat.

He received two Silver Star Medals, five Bronze Star Medals, one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, and two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals.
