Re Chris Kyle. I saw the movie, very intense. Did not read the book. I was curious about Chris Kyle, so I did some research on him. Found out about the law suit. It was filed before Kyles death, the trial took place after his death. Kyle was questioned on tape re the incident and that was played at the trial. Seems Kyle story kept changing, other people who were at the bar at the time of the incident said it never happened. In any case, the jury found in Ventura favor. Kyle wrote in his book re the car jacking and the hurricane Katrina sniper job. It has be proven these two things never happened. I find it so sad Kyle felt the need to fabricate stories re himself. In any case, he was a solider, did 4 tours of duty, and performed his duties he was sent to do. Is he a hero? Some people will say yes and some people will say no. whatever your opinion about him, he served our country in an unnecessary war and deserves our thanks.
