A couple of months ago (how long ago was that? Not long ago) someone on this site predicted this death.

Sarah Palin has posted on her Facebook page about this. Chris was a friend of the Palins. He had helped out with security at the premiere of her movie “The Undefeated”, in Pella, IA.

If you go to the link, there is a video interview of Chris Kyle. One of the interesting things you’ll find out about this hero is that the profits from his book American Sniper go to help the families of his brother Seals who fell in action.

Godspeed Chris, and I know your brother Seals will rally around your family.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and many friends of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle tonight. Todd and I first met Chris in Pella, Iowa, when he helped out with security for the premiere of the film “The Undefeated.” And later we became friends with Chris when he was on “Stars Earn Stripes” with Todd. Chris was a wonderful man, a good friend, and a true American hero who loved our country and served honorably. He was loved and admired by so many, and he will never be forgotten.

- Todd and Sarah Palin

If a doctor gave the OK for men suffering from combat-oriented PTSD to go to a firing range as part of their treatment, that doctor needs to be brought before a review board.

Why did they take a man who obviously had severe PTSD to the shooting range? The only thing I can think of is that he was afraid of guns after a traumatic incident, but he obviously needed intensive therapy. I don’t know what therapist would recommend sending him there, and if that therapist did, I would think the therapist would have ascertained that his mental health was stable enough to go there and would have accompanied him. It’s either a therapist actually thought he was stable enough to go and sent him with these guys or these guys took it upon themselves to try to help him in this manner. Either way, this backfired in a big way.

This man is obviously a hero for his service to this country, and I see he was friends with the Palins. That’s more indication he was a good guy. We lost another good one too young. May he and his neighbor go with God.

Another 20's something male that intersects with Government--ex Marine.

Seal Commander in A'stan commits suicide. Doherty killed in Libya. 30 Seals on Seal Team 6 killed in copter crash in A'stan.

Something is very wrong here. This Administration is capable of anything--it is the biggest collection of Communists, anti-Americans, and thieves ever assembled in DC. And they are creating a pile of cash out of thin air and giving it to all their cronies to advance their country killing agenda.
