Three years ago today, America lost a great warrior and hero. RIP Chris Kyle. You will never be forgotten! 2.2.13
“It was my duty to shoot the enemy, and I don’t regret it. My regrets are for the people I couldn’t save: Marines, soldiers, buddies. I’m not naive, and I don’t romanticize war. The worst moments of my life have come as a SEAL. But I can stand before God with a clear conscience about doing my job.” -Chris Kyle
The Bulletproof Dog That Stormed Bin Laden’s Lair:
If you see this dog coming for you, run. Thanks to his extensive training–and customized body armor that can cost upwards of $30,000–he’s bulletproof, can hear through concrete, and can record high-def video of missions, even in the dead of night.
On 6 August 2011, a U.S. Boeing CH-47 Chinook military helicopter, call sign Extortion 17, was shot down while transporting a quick reaction force attempting toreinforce an engaged unit of Army Rangers in Wardak province, west of Kabul, Afghanistan. The resulting crash killed all 38 people on board—25 American special operations personnel, five United States Army National Guard and Army Reserve crewmen, seven Afghan commandos, and one Afghan interpreter—as well as a U.S. military working dog. Please help me honor them so that they are not forgotten.
