About Chris Kyle
Christopher Scott Kyle (April 8, 1974 - February 2, 2013) was born to parents, Wayne and Deby Kyle. He has a younger brother, Jeff who is a Marine Corps Veteran - serving from 2000 to 2008. Before entering the Navy, he attended Tarleton State in Stephenville, Texas where he rode bucking horses and worked ranches in that same area. A debilitating arm injury from rodeo competition almost cut his hopes of becoming a Navy SEAL, but in true Kyle fashion, he persevered and graduated BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition / SEAL) with Class 233.
From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most sniper kills in United States military history. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much, they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil"} and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow Teammates, Marines, and other military soldiers and airmen, whom he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions.
Chief Kyle served four combat tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom and other clandestine operations for the United States Navy and Marines. For his unrelenting bravery in battle, he was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, as well as one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation. The Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs awarded him with the Grateful Nation Award. He was shot twice, survived multiple helicopter crashes and was involved in six IED attacks.
Following his combat deployments, he became Chief Instructor for training Naval Special Warfare Sniper and Counter Sniper teams. In addition, Kyle authored the Naval Special Warfare Doctrine, the first Navy SEAL sniper manual and devoted much of his spare time helping disabled Veterans.
Gripping and unforgettable, Chris's masterful account of his incredible battlefield experiences in the New York Times bestselling book "American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. History" ranks as one of the greatest war memoirs of all time.
Before his untimely passing in 2013, Chris was a devoted son, brother, husband and father in North Texas, as well as continuing his efforts to helping Veterans re-acclimate to civilian life and combat stress carried home.
Kyle + Littlefield Memorial Run
The Kyle + Littlefield Memorial Run event will be held this year at the Dallas Beast, one of the largest Spartan events, located in Glen Rose, Texas. In fact, the main event is taking place at Rough Creek Lodge, the exact same property where Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield were both shot and killed in February 2013. With absolutely 0% administrative overhead, salaries, or fees, 50% of the proceeds raised from the event this year will go to Guardian For Heroes, the charity Chris himself started when he retired from the SEAL Teams. And the other 50% will go to Debbie Lee’s America’s Mighty Warriors (Debbie is Gold Star Mother of Navy SEAL Marc Lee, the first Navy SEAL killed in Iraq and SEAL Team 3 Teammate of Chris'. After Marc's death, Debbie was like a second Mother to Chris, and many other SEALs. These are the two Foundations Chris himself makes specific mention of in his book "American Sniper".
