Ex-Seal Chris Kyle Funeral Procession.

Just snapped a few pics as the procession rolled through my town.
I decided to get out early and get a spot, with my American Flag of course.

Me with the flag on the overpass..




I was above the yellow sign, holding the flag straight up in the air while they were passing.














It was the most humbling experience. No one talked. The overpass I was on was shoulder to shoulder with Vets. The Procession was a 200 mile trip to Austin, with the vehicles stretched 10 miles. The complete 3 lane highway was shut down, on ramps, and exits......

I just thought I'd share what I did today.

RIP Chris Kyle

Amen....
Here is a youtube video someone shot at the overpass behind the one we were on.
(Was for emergency personnel only)
They had the 2 ladder Fire Trucks with a flag in between, with a Bag Piper on top playing....

It was just something I felt I had to go support. Got choked up a little bit, as did some of the old timer Vets. Was amazing to see the outpouring of support.

No doubt. As a vet I would have loved to have been there to show my support. What highway is that?

Long story short. They were having a benefit for vets to help with PTSD, one vet got angry with something Chris said and shot him point blank along with another combat vet. Chris was considered the deadliest sniper in the country with 160 confirmed kills. He also had an autobiography out titled the autobiography of the most lethal sniper.
