    Very few lives lost mean anything. The world is a much poorer place with this mans passing. God Bless.

    Thank you for this to all the tweeters and twitchy

    Just something to consider for those who still think the Second Amendment is a policy paper, open to morphing for the whims of the pacifist. As they lower my fellow Navy man into the sacred ground of US soil, he will be accompanied with the crack of a rifle, not with the sound of applause.

    Thank you sailors, veterans and citizenry for remembering that despite what the perverse cackle in liberal forums about Kyle, in the end…he did what his country asked of him and in doing so, sparred the blood of patriots and saved American lives.

    Lo, there do I see my father.
    Lo, there do I see my mother.
    And my sister and my brother
    Lo, there do I see the line of my people Back to the beginning
    Lo, they do call to me.
    They bid me take my place among them In the halls of Valhalla
    Where the brave may live forever.” R.I.P.#Chris Kyle Thank You for your service.

    All three networks dedicated two hours without commercials to this service! Only in Texas! He will be buried in the Texas State Cemetary tomorrow and they will cover the 200 mile procession on I-35 to Austin! Only in Texas!

    This man was larger than life!

    A TRUE American Hero

    My favorite poem

    A soldier died today

    He was getting old and his hair was falling fast,

    And he sat around telling stories of the past.

    Of a war that he had fought in and the deeds that he had done,

    In his exploits with buddies; they were the heroes, every one.

    And though sometimes to his neighbors, his tales became a joke,

    All his buddies listened, for they knew whereof he spoke.

    But we’ll hear his tales no longer, for he has passed away,

    And the world’s a little poorer, for a soldier died today.

    No he won’t be mourned by many, just his friends,
    children, and wife,

    For he lived a very quiet sort of ordinary life.

    He held a job, and raised a family, quietly going on his way.

    And the world won’t note his passing; though a soldier died today.

    When politicians leave this earth, their bodies lie in

    While thousands note their passing and proclaim that they were great.

    Papers tell of their life stories from the time that they were young,

    But the passing of a soldier goes unnoticed and unsung.

    Is the greatest contribution to the welfare of our

    Some jerk who breaks his promises and cons his fellow man?

    Or the ordinary fellow, who in times of war and strife,

    Goes off to serve his country and offer up his life?

    The politician’s stipend and the style in which he lives,

    Are sometimes disproportionate to the service that he gives,

    While the ordinary soldier, who offered up his all,

    Is paid off with a medal and perhaps a pension small.

    It’s so easy to forget them, for it was so long ago

    That the husbands, sons, and fathers went to battle, but we know

    It was not the politicians, with their compromise and ploys,

    Who won for us the freedom that our country now enjoys.

    Should you find yourself in danger with your enemies at hand,

    Would you really want some cop-out politician with his waffling stand?

    Or would you want a soldier who has sworn to defend,

    His home, his kin, and country, and would fight until the end?

    He was just a common soldier and his ranks are growing

    But his presence should remind us, we may need his like again.

    For when countries are in conflict, then we find the soldiers part,

    Is to clean up all the troubles that the politicians start.

    If we cannot do him honor while he’s here to receive the praise,

    Then at least let’s give him homage at the ending of his days.

    Perhaps a simple headline in the paper that might say:

    “Our Country is in Mourning, for a Soldier Died Today”

    To paraphrase President Reagan: “Some people wonder all their lives if they’ve made a difference. The Seals don’t have that problem.”

    Sunset and evening star,

    And one clear call for me!

    And may there be no moaning of the bar,

    When I put out to sea,

    But such a tide as moving seems asleep,

    Too full for sound and foam,

    When that which drew from out the boundless deep

    Turns again home.

    Twilight and evening bell,

    And after that the dark!

    And may there be no sadness of farewell,

    When I embark;

    For tho’ from out our bourne of Time and Place

    The flood may bear me far,

    I hope to see my Pilot face to face

    When I have crost the bar.

    Sad how some people show no respect for a war hero who saved many American lives. In the meantime, our ‘commander in chief’ is a no s how and still silent on American Sniper, Navy SEAL and war hero Chris Kyle’s death. Video Arlington, TX:Thousands Attend American Sniper’s Memorial At Cowboys Stadium Must watch!There are also petitions to name a Navy vessel after Chris Kyle, and a High School according to local news reports.
