Today’s workout is in memory of CPO Chris Kyle, U.S. Navy, SEAL Team 3, Sniper Element, Charlie Platoon, who was shot and killed on February 2, 2013, in Texas.
Although Chris is best known for the title of the deadliest sniper in all of American history, this did not define the man. It was his job, which he did extraordinarily well, but it did not define who Chris was nor how he saw himself.
“People tell me I saved hundreds and hundreds of people. But I have to tell you: it’s not the people you saved that you remember. It’s the ones you couldn’t save. Those are the ones you talk about. Those are the faces and situations that stay with you forever.”
In Chris’ last interview, he spoke about how he wanted to be remembered, his legacy: “I would love for people to be able to think of me as a guy who stood up for what he believed in and helped make a difference for the vets,” he said. “You know, somebody who cared so much about them that he wanted them taken care of.”
During his ten years of service, Kyle was the recipient of two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement medals and one Navy and Marine Corps commendation, Kyle served four tours of duty in Iraq and is survived by his wife and two children.
