True American Hero Tribute: Chris Kyle's 200 Mile Funeral Procession Home
Produced as a tribute by Michael Nast:
"God Bless the Kyle & Littlefield families."
Here is a moving print tribute:
Death without mercy in a distant place defined Chris Kyle, but it was kindness that killed him in his native Texas. The most lethal sniper in American military history, he was credited with 160 confirmed kills in places such as Falluja and Baghdad; the true body count was perhaps as high as 255. Able to end lives without a flicker of emotion in Iraq, Kyle lost his own last weekend at a shooting range because he took pity on a stranger.

Watch Chris Kyle's final journey to his resting place in Austin. Here is a 10 mile section of his funeral procession passing through Waxahachie, Texas, with local mourners paying their respect along the route. Even the weather looks somber for the occasion. And our President was, of course, MIA.
