Her “American Sniper” husband was shot and killed at a shooting stray several years ago, but today, she’s testifying “the worlds” the man that so few knew …
A little over 3 years ago, Navy SEAL Chris Kyle was assassinated at a killing range in Texas by former Marine Eddie Ray Routh. After dying a disastrous fatality and bravely protecting his country with more than 160 kills during his time in Iraq, Chris became the brainchild for the strike movie American Sniper .
But this weekend, his wife, Taya, took to Facebook to remind us of the husband, the father and the adorable kid at heart behind the sniper we ascertain on the big screen. This isn’t the first time that Taya has get us teary-eyed over Chris, but her recent birthday tribute to her late spouse certainly takes the cake.

For the ever present glint in your gaze, the shenanigans, the route you affection teenagers and puppies, your gentle method with horses and for crushing cake in my face … for all of this and more thank you.
For educating me living and euphorium is worth fighting for. For prompting me that a family requires one another to be whole and healthy and that it’s worth the fight to be health for each other thank you. For continues to inspire me thank you. And most of all, babe thank you for desiring our children and me they lane you did.
