Texas Governor Greg Abbott has been busy. Besides standing strong against Obama’s pro-illegal immigrant agenda and expanding Second Amendment rights in the Lone Star State, he has also awarded famed sniper Chris Kyle with the Texas Legislative Medal of Honor.
Gov. Greg Abbott has signed a resolution posthumously awarding Chris Kyle the Texas Legislative Medal of Honor.
Kyle was a native Texan and Navy Seal who served four tours in Iraq. Abbott also dedicated a portion of Highway 287 in Midlothian, Texas as “Chris Kyle Memorial Highway” and has proclaimed Feb. 2 as “Chris Kyle Day” in Texas.
“Since its inception, 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 in a statement.
Kyle is American hero who dedicated his life to the defense of his nation. He is a very worthy recipient of this high honor.
