Chris Kyle Day

Governor Greg Abbott is declaring February 2nd as Chris Kyle Day. He made the announcement Friday while speaking to a Texas Veteran of Foreign Wars Convention in Austin. 

He said it's in honor of the U.S. serviceman whose life is depicted in the blockbuster film "American Sniper." He said the state will commemorate Kyle's life on Monday.

Kyle was killed at a North Texas gun range near Fort Worth in 2013. He did four tours in Iraq and is considered to be the deadliest sniper in U.U.S.military history.
