American Sniper by Chris Kyle

I opened the cover, & couldn't put it down. One day read. I highly recomend this book.

It has very little to do with Long range shooting, eventhough Chris Kyle has the current record for most confirmed kills. It's more of a peek into the life of a SEAL team member, & some of his experiences. As well as a credit to some of his friends, & fellow team members who gave all.

The guy is humble, & truly an American Patriot, as is his family. I'm still in awe of what some guys are willing to sacrifice for our country.

I'm even more proud to be an American after this read. Thank you to ALL our Veterans, & a special thank you to the silent warriors who consistantly give so much.

Lone Survivor, by Marcus Luttrell is next on my list.

+1 Good Read! I'd heard that old "Scruff Face" in the book was Jesse Ventura, but that Ventura disputes what actually happened. I'm hoping Kyle smacked him good.

Re: American Sniper by Chris Kyle

I downloaded the book on my Nook Color. It si a special addition where he talks about different situations he explains in the book. It is crazy cool. If you are looking for another dynamite read...Lone Survior. The author is a very good friend of Mr. Kyles that was in SEAL teams. This story is unbelieveable.

Check it out!!

+1 on Lone Survivor. Next time you have a little ache or are feeling down, just go back and think about what Marcus had to go through. Simply amazing.
