A photo of Chris Kyle’s burial has surfaced on social media, and it appears to show that more than 100 Navy SEAL trident pins were pounded into the casket by Kyle’s fellow warriors. A fitting send-off for an American hero.
Rest in peace, Chris Kyle. You will indeed be missed.
Our headline was revised to say that the pins were pounded into the casket, not “left” on it.
