A Texas Tragedy
Imagine if after World War I, Alvin York had been gunned down back home in Tennessee, or if after World War II, Audie Murphy had been shot to death. A bizarre circumstance arose in Texas where one of the great heroes of America's war in Iraq was killed by a fellow veteran at a gun range. Chris Kyle was a member of US Navy SEAL Team 3 who was one of the most decorated US service personnel in the post-September 11, 2001 wars. An act of madness has claimed him not on some distant battlefield but near his home.
