Dad of 'American Sniper': Son Wanted to Know How Many Lives He Saved
The father of slain “American Sniper” Chris Kyle was on “Hannity” tonight to remember his son and to discuss the new film.
Chris Kyle had more confirmed kills than any other person in U.S. military history. He was murdered at a shooting range in 2013.
Sean Hannity said tonight that Kyle saved an incalculable number of American troops. His father Wayne Kyle said that something that always bothered Chris is that “he would really like to know how many lives he saved rather than how many lives he took.”
Kyle told Hannity that his family is struggling to learn to live with their loss.
“It’s been a struggle. It’s kind of bittersweet because we’re happy and glad that people are still aware of Chris and see the man that he was and still is to us, and yet it hurts that there’s always that constant reminder. We have those reminders in our house, but when you turn the TV on or go out in public, there’s always that reminder,” Kyle said.
Kyle also discussed meeting Clint Eastwood and Bradley Cooper before the making of the movie.
“I looked both of them in the eye, and I said, 'If you do anything to dishonor my son, I’ll unleash hell on you,'" he said.
"American Sniper" is in theaters now.
