Chris Kyle answers questions from ‘Time’ magazine following the 2012 release of his book, ‘American Sniper.’
In the book, Kyle describes his experiences as the United States’ deadliest sniper. He also discusses the experiences of his family members.
Speaking with an editor from “Time,” Kyle shows he is as good at responding to those who oppose his wartime actions as he is at being a sniper. Kyle tells the reporter that he is “a better husband and father than he was a killer. Now, don’t take deer hunting away from me.”
Sadly, Kyle was murdered on February 2, 2013, by a former Marine he was trying to help deal with PTSD.
Kyle was a stand-up guy and a true American hero. Watch the clip to see for yourself.
