Chris Kyle’s Widow Speechless Over Proceeds From Rifle Raffle

NAVY Seal sniper Chris Kyle’s widow Taya Kyle was left speechless after receiving a check for the proceeds from a raffle of a replica of Kyle’s sniper rifle on Friday.

The rifle, a McMillan .338 Lapua, was one of five rifles raffled by AmericanSnipers.org.

According to CNN, the group presented Taya with $62,000 in proceeds for her family following the raffle.

“I don’t know what to say,” an overwhelmed Taya stated. “It’s been a bittersweet journey, obviously, and I do feel that Chris is with me.”

AmericanSnipers.org co-founder Chris Sain said: “I think America needs heroes like Chris. He was a diehard American.”

Breitbart News also reported on a hunting trip in which Taya pursued and killed an antelope in Chris Kyle’s honor. In a short film of the hunt released by Weatherby Inc., Taya talked of Chris’s love for hunting and her growing love for it as well.

“The more I do it, the more I fall in love with it,” she said.

Chris Kyle was shot and killed at a Texas shooting range while trying to help a fellow vet with PTSD in February 2013.
