I’m not usually a war movie person, but after reading about Chris Kyle and his family, I knew I wanted to go see American Sniper when it came out. I knew it wasn’t going to be an easy movie to sit through, but I wanted to see how the movie portrayed how Chris loved his country and how his faith that kept him grounded.
I personally loved the movie, it tugs at your heart strings and it gives you a greater sense of what our soldiers go through to protect our country.Watching Chris with his family and the struggles he had himself adjusting back into civilian life, will help all of us to understand a little better as to what our veterans are dealing with.

From director Clint Eastwood comes “American Sniper,” starring Bradley Cooper as Chris Kyle, whose skills as a sniper made him a hero on the battlefield. But there was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield, and as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to “leave no one behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.
