Kyle enlisted in 2002 and during his career he received numerous awards and decorations.

Kyle's military comrades are in mourning over the death of their brother. Navy
officials stated that Kyle had determination and a warrior spirit. He was a husband,
Light a candle for Kyle. Light his way to
father, son, friend and teammate. He was one of the good guys.  He will be forever remembered.

Kyle's loved ones are devastated over his sudden and tragic death. He was a loving son, father and husband. He was a true professional. Kyle was loving and was loved in return. He did his best. He will be forever mourned.

Oceans of tears have been shed for Kyle. 

Kyle is survived by many loving comrades, friends and family members who will forever miss him.

Thank you for your service to America, Kyle. 

Pray for all who die in the line of duty.

Pray for all who die in a foreign land, far from their loved ones.

Pray that Kyle is in Heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.

Pray, without ceasing, unto God for an end to all War. It is enough.
