    It was a sad weekend for Texans as we learned of the tragic death of native son, Chris Kyle, killed by the young man he was trying to help, a veteran suffering from PTSD.

    Kyle, the most lethal sniper in military history, had over 150 successful kills to his credit, served four tours, and survived being shot twice and six separate IED explosions. Like so many Texas boys, the Odessa-born Seal was shooting a gun by the time he was eight, his targets West Texas varmits.

    Many Central Texans came to know Chris when he was a student at Tarleton State University. The world eventually learned of him through his illustrious military service, the American lives  saved by those very marksman skills he learned as a West Texas boy unnumbered.
