American SniperA few years ago, we had the privilege of interviewing Chris Kyle, a highly decorated Navy Seal, one of the leading U.S. military snipers of all time. He wrote a brutally honest memoir called American Sniper. Tragically, and ironically, Chris was killed last weekend...not on the battlefield but at a charity event in Texas. The alleged gunman? A military veteran Chris tried to befriend. In his honor, we are re-airing our interview with Chris Kyle.
