This man was truly a legend, and a force to be reckoned with behind a scope. With 150 confirmed kills along with the longest sniper kill in history that earned him the nickname "the devil of Ramadi" and causing the enemy to put a 120 thousand dollar bounty on his head. He survived the war and returned home to his wife and children but suffered from ptsd so to cope with that he wrote a book about his experiences, not only that but also started a program to help veterans, that act of kindness cost him his life. On this day Chris was playing in the living room with his wife and kids when there was a knock on the door. The knock was from a veteran who Chris agreed to take out to the range that day and talk to help the man cope with ptsd. Chris kissed his wife and children goodbye unknowingly for the last time as he was shot in the back at the shooting range by the veteran he was trying to help. If you haven't watched the movie or read the book "American Sniper" you should. I didn't know who this man was until I picked up his book and read his story, then watched Bradley Cooper bring it to life on the big screen. I have nothing but respect for this man, the American people owe this man a great amount of gratitude for what he did, as well as prayers for his wife and kids today.
