Chris Kyle, U.S. Navy SEAL, Chief, SEAL Team 3
SEAL Team 3 Chief Chris Kyle served four combat tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom and other clandestine operations for the U.S. Navy and Marines. For his unrelenting bravery in battle, he was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, and one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation. Additionally, he received the Grateful Nation Award, given by the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs.
Following his combat deployments, he became chief instructor for training Naval Special Warfare Sniper and Counter-Sniper teams. In addition, Kyle authored the Naval Special Warfare Sniper Doctrine, the first Navy SEAL sniper manual and devoted much of his spare time to helping disabled veterans.
Gripping and unforgettable, Kyle’s masterful account of his extraordinary battlefield experiences in the New York Times bestselling book “American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History” ranks as one of the great war memoirs of all time.
Before his tragic passing in 2013, Chris devoted time to his wife and their two children in North Texas, as well as much of his spare time to helping disabled veterans and those struggling with PTSD.
Today, we humbly and proudly carry the torch Chris left us and champion the cause to assist the hundreds of thousands in the military, veterans and Gold Star Families with the many struggles they may face. We strive to act as a resource and provide assistance through health, wellness and fitness.
