Born in Odessa, Texas, Chris Kyle was the son of a Sunday school teacher and a deacon. His father bought him his first gun at 8 years old, a bolt-action .30-06 Springfield rifle, and later a shotgun, with which they hunted pheasant, quail, and deer. After school, Kyle became a professional bronco rodeo rider, but his profession ended abruptly when he severely injured his arm. After his arm healed, he went to a military recruiting office, interested in joining the United States Marine Corps. A U.S. Navy recruiter told him about the U.S. Navy SEALs. Kyle was interested and signed up, but was rejected because of the pins in his arm. A little while later, he received a call and he had the chance to go to BUD/S (Basic Underwater Demolition SEAL school), finally joining the United States Navy in 1999.
Assigned to SEAL Team 3, Sniper Element Charlie platoon within the Naval Special Warfare Command, and with over four tours of duty, Kyle served in every major battle of Operation Iraqi Freedom. His first long-range kill shot was taken during the initial invasion, when he shot a woman approaching a group of US Marines with a hand grenade in her hand. As ordered, he opened fire, killing the woman before she could attack. For his deadly track record as a marksman during his deployment to Ramadi, the insurgents named him Shaitan Ar-Ramadi (English: The Devil of Ramadi), and put a $20,000 bounty on his head that was later increased to $80,000. In 2008 outside Sadr City, he made his longest successful shot, after he spotted an insurgent with a rocket launcher near a U.S. Army convoy at a range of 2,100 yards (1.2 mi). He fired a shot from his Lapua Magnum PGM .338 rifle, killing the insurgent. During four tours of duty in Iraq, Kyle was shot twice and caught up in six separate IED explosions.
Kyle left the U.S. Navy in 2009, and moved to Midlothian, Texas with his wife, Taya, and two children. He ran Craft International, which provides military, law enforcement, and civilian training, as well as private security and protection until his death. In 2012, Harper Collins released Kyle's autobiographical book American Sniper. Kyle also paired with FITCO Cares Foundation, a non-profit organization which created the Heroes Project to provide free in-home fitness equipment, individualized programs, personal training, and life-coaching to in-need veterans with disabilities, Gold Star families, or those suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Kyle was killed on February 2, 2013, at the Rough Creek Lodge shooting range in Erath County, Texas. Local police captured the suspect Eddie Ray Routh, after a short freeway chase, which ended when Routh, who had left the scene of the shootings in Kyle's Ford F-350 truck, crashed into a police cruiser. The suspect was arrested just before 9:00 p.m. the same day in Lancaster, Texas. Erath County Sheriffs said the motive for the killing was unclear. Routh, 25, of Lancaster was arraigned Saturday evening on two counts of capital murder, according to Sgt. Lonny Haschel of the Texas Department of Public Safety. Routh is being held in the Erath County Jail under a $3 million bond. A friend of Kyle said the suspect was a veteran struggling with PTSD. Kyle had reportedly taken Routh to the gun range in an effort to help him with his PTSD.
So long, Chief Petty Officer Christopher Scott Kyle, we hardlky knew ye.
Ernie, sorry to send the email here, hope you get this. Take a look at this. Man, I hope this is not a joke. A church can't support the community? I just don't get it.... I'd take money from just about anyone to support our troops. But turning down a church? Thoughts? JT [Ernie says: I suspect you'll see WWP reverse their decision post haste]
Hi Ernie, Faithful follower of your page for years … Sitting at home bored to DEATH while rehabbing from a recent knee replacement, I was at my computer and browsing EHOWA (as I do almost daily) and read about your dilemma. So I took it upon myself to search for the location in the Julian & Spencer Company pic using good old Google Maps ...and I found it! ...It's opposite 21 Bridge Street Shrewsbury, Shropshire. Your picture is apparently a few years old as the property in the picture was torn down and replaced with another building that was built in the style of the surrounding old buildings. Also the garage with the blue doors in the background was also torn down but you can see its outline on the row houses that staircase up in the distance. You can clearly see the China Rose Cantonese Restaurant in the background of both pictures. Also a few pics below. Keep up the good work. Scott
The Gepard anti-materiel rifles are a family of Hungarian weapons designed to destroy unarmored and lightly armored targets. These long range, large caliber rifles have high accuracy as well as high muzzle velocity. The Gepards originate from World War I anti-tank rifles developed by the Germans to damage armored vehicles. Since then, anti-materiel rifles fell into disuse. Heavier tanks meant thicker armor, which even the heaviest rifles could not pierce. However, in 1987 the Hungarian army sought to obtain a compact, mobile weapon that could damage lightly armored targets. The project, led by the Institute of Military Technology of the Hungarian People's Army, culminated in the creation of the Gepards GM6 anti-materiel rifle.
This 'Rule 34' is the idea that if there is a subject, theme or idea out there in the world, then there will be porn of it. Looking for black amputee toilet hardware handjob porn? No problem. Quite simply put, if "it" exists, there is porn of "it". And now I will share with you the awful truth of Rule 34. And of course, the next rule, 'Rule 35' is basically that if no such porn of a particular subject exists, porn will be made.
