I had the privelege to ride with the Patriotic Guard Riders Tuesday escorting Chris Kyle from Midlothian, TX to the Texas State Cemetery in Austin, TX The weather started out cold and rainy at daylight but ended up rather balmy and sunny 200 miles later. there are numerous vids posted on you tube but suffice it to say, there was an outpouring of patriotism like none I have ever seen in my lifetime. through the wet and cold, the motorcade traveled down I-35. every overpass was packed with people, flags, signs, peace officers, fire trucks, veterans, and just common folks. in incorporated areas, the right-of-way was full of the same. really a sight to behold,and an indescribable feeling to be able to participate in the event. i was truly honored.
RIP CPO CHRIS KYLE

I hesitate to use the word hero because it is used too often, almost to the point of trivial. But I can’t think of another.
He deserved better than he got. Thank you Chris Kyle.
That is a honor to be able to do that for a true American Hero.
Nice going Mel. That must have been pretty incredible.
the ride was awesome, brotherman and the service was truly monumental. it was a private affair but my vantage point was only bout 60 yards away
1. priest led in down the path, followed by the pipes and drums, and last the casket carried by seals
2. priest said eulogy, blessing, and prayer.
3. 21 gun salute
6. flag on casket folded and presented to wife.
7. 100 seals, active and retired, hammered their tridents into the coffin 1 by 1. the pounding echoed all over
8. seals kneeled around casket, pipes played amazing grace
the whole thing, ride and service still sends chills over me, especially when i talk bout it.
Damn. Just reading that little outline right there gets me going.
A fine tribute to a fallen warrior.
