In 2009, former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle left the military and started a career as a novelist. He sold a book based on his experiences in the military and gained a huge fan base.
The book became a hit and the movie, American Sniper, was released in 2014. Both helped to spread the Navy SEAL's name around America.
His life as a Navy SEAL was an inspiration to people all over the world. He received awards such as the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal, two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor and a Gold Star for valor.
But after his career in the military, it became clear that he was missing something. He missed his family.
He wanted to spend time with his wife and children. He also wanted to help people.
When he was a child, he loved playing with guns and shooting BBs. He even liked to hunt with his father and brother, although he was not very good at it.
Then, in 2004, he was sent to Iraq and began a long stint of fighting there. He was known as a tough, dependable guy who had a knack for reading his environment and knew when to shoot.
During his time in the military, he had met a woman named Taya (Sienna Miller). She told him she wouldn't date a SEAL, as her sister had been cheated on and lied to, but he was kind to her. Their relationship progressed, and they eventually got married. They had two children together.
