While debate and discussion in Washington continue over Chris Kyle potentially being awarded the Medal of Honor, in Texas the talking is over.
Gov. Greg Abbott has posthumously awarded American hero Chris Kyle the Texas Legislative Medal of Honor.
“The Texas Legislative Medal of Honor has been awarded to those in the State of Texas who have demonstrated extraordinary heroism as a member of state or federal military forces, and there is no one more deserving of this year’s award than Chief Petty Officer Chris Kyle,” Gov. Abbott said.
Additionally, Gov. Abbott renamed a large part of a highway for the sniper. May Chris rest in peace.
Texas is honoring Chris Kyle in the most incredible way. This is so touching.
Texas Gov. Greg Abott just posthumously awarded Navy SEAL, Chris Kyle, with the Texas Legislative Medal of Honor. The governor also dedicated part of a Texas highway as “Chris Kyle Memorial Highway.” It’s a beautiful way to honor the late inspiration behind American Sniper who served four years in Iraq and lost his life in an unexpected tragedy.
