A Texas congressman is lobbying hard to get American hero Chris Kyle the Medal of Honor.
On Thursday, Rep. Roger Williams, R-Texas introduced the Chris Kyle Medal of Honor Act, a bill that would “authorize and request” President Obama to award the highest military honor to the Seal.
“Chris gave the ultimate sacrifice and served his nation with distinction and bravery while saving countless American lives,” Williams said in a statement, according to USA Today. “There is no doubt that this true American hero is worthy of our nation’s highest military honor. While the Medal of Honor will not bring back a husband, father, son and a model Texan, we owe Chris Kyle and his family a great deal of gratitude for his relentless devotion to his country.”
Kyle served four tours of duty in Iraq and has the most confirmed kills in U.S. military history. He seems like a perfect candidate for the Medal of Honor to us!
