Actor Dean Cain took to Twitter to express his grief at the loss of his friend, American hero Chris Kyle. As Twitchy sadly reported, Chris Kyle was shot and killed at a charity even in Texas last night.

Cain was teamed up with Chris Kyle on the NBC television show “Stars Earn Stripes.”

“Stars Earn Stripes” host Samantha Harris tweets a memory.

Dean Cain was playing for Wounded Warriors Project.

It appears as if that was not actually a retweet of a Dean Cain tweet. (Correction: yes it was.) However, Dean Cain then did retweet the sentiment himself.

Nick Lachey also mourns the loss of Chris Kyle.

Dean Cain continued to retweet prayers and praise for hero Chris Kyle, including prayers from Sarah Palin. Todd Palin also appeared on “Stars Earn Stripes.”

    I’m not certain but I believe Dean Cain would be on the conservative end of the Hollywierd political spectrum.

    The loss of this great SEAL by someone who intended to kill him is such a tragedy. Chris served and, once he was done, expected to live his life without facing another enemy.

    I have yet to hear the ethnicity or any other details of the killer. Those details MAY be important to other heroes. Don’t write or speak of what you did. There are others who hate you for it.

      Sadly, it was a former Marine who suffers PTSD. Chris was volunteering at an event to help those with PTSD, some thing he has done many times. It is a Mental Health issue again, but the Press won’t address it properly. They are already lining up their anti gun stories and not pro mental health stories.

        Not to mention starting the new shooting range regulations…

      I think he is. And if he learned anything from Stars Earn Stripes, he won’t give in when the left whackos start attacking him.

    • Mekadave

      I believe so as well. This article says he supported Rick Perry in the last election and McCain in 2008 with an accompanying video showing him appearing on FoxNews about it. I suspect he’ll stand up to the whackos just fine. http://www.politico.com/blogs/click/0911/Superman_Dean_Cain_endorses_Rick_Perry.html

    Rest in peace, soldier.

    What a tragedy.
    I don’t care how it sounds, something is not right with this story.

  • GMAinMN

    May he have fair winds and following seas..

  • bonnieblue2A

    It would be great if Dean Cain, Nick Latchey and Sara Palin would pick up the mantle and help support veterans with PTSD, including FITCO Cares.

  • Michele Pullara Allen

    This is a huge loss……but one thing doesn’t seem right……hmmmmm

  • KansasGirl

    Tragic.
    Go with G-d soldier.

    Such a tragedy for the Kyle family, Chris’ friend who was also killed Chad Littlefield and the Marine who killed them and suffers from PTSD. God speed gentlemen and thank you for your service Chris Kyle.

    Have you seen the uproar in the twiiter community and the online news web sites? It is absolutely disgusting, there are multitudes of sick people cheering his death! Do something about this, we need to repel these sub humans.

    • Dan Thorpe

      How about some of the trolls that have popped up here? Its absolutely disgusting that the cretins fail to respect the soldiers that make sure the freedoms the people expect on a daily basis.

    I respected Chief Kyle beyond words, and I’ve been having allergy troubles ever since hearing about the loss. For some of you who may not know: Chief Kyle was decorated with two Silver Stars, and five Bronze Stars with V for Valor (Among numerous other commendations). He survived being shot twice, as well as four IED attacks. From a SEAL Teammate of his who I recently heard from, Chief Kyle on one occasion saved injured Marines from a firefight. The injured Marines’ fellow Marines were too afraid to run in to help their battle buddies out (Hey, if Marines are afraid that’s a serious SHTF situation, nearly unheard of), and the Chief ran through a literal wall of gunfire to reach the Marines, and he then proceeded to fireman carry them out on his back, to safety, out of the kill zone. THAT is a HERO. He was Honorably Discharged from the Teams later on because he realized that he had to make a choice between the career that he loved, or the family which he cherished, and he rightfully chose the latter. God Bless you Warrior, a god among Men, and a Patriot for the annals of history. We love you as a brother, a mentor, and an idol, and you will always be remembered. Never Quit, Never Forget. Hooyah.
