Christopher Scott Kyle (April 8, 1974 – February 2, 2013) was a United States Navy SEAL veteran and sniper. Kyle served four tours in the Iraq War and was awarded several commendations for acts of heroism and meritorious service in combat. He was awarded one Silver Star Medal , four Bronze Star Medals with "V" devices , a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal and numerous other unit and personal awards. [4] [8] Kyle was honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy in 2009 and published his bestselling autobiography, American Sniper , in 2012. An eponymous film adaptation of Kyle's book, directed by Clint Eastwood , was released two years later.

On February 2, 2013, Kyle was murdered by Eddie Ray Routh at a shooting range near Chalk Mountain, Texas . [9] A former Marine with post traumatic stress disorder , Routh was found guilty and sentenced to life in prison without parole. [10]

Kyle was born in Odessa, Texas , the first of two boys born to Deby Lynn ( née Mercer) and Wayne Kenneth Kyle, a Sunday school teacher and deacon . [3] [11] Kyle's father bought his son his first rifle at 8 years old, a bolt-action .30-06 Springfield rifle, and later a shotgun, with which they hunted deer, pheasant , and quail . [3] Kyle and his brother grew up raising up to 150 head of cattle at a time. [12] Kyle attended high school in Midlothian, Texas , [13] and after graduating, became a professional bronco rodeo rider and ranch hand, but his professional rodeo career ended abruptly when he severely injured his arm. [14]

In the new Clint Eastwood-directed film American Sniper , Bradley Cooper plays Chris Kyle, the Navy SEAL who was credited with the most confirmed kills (160) in American military history. Kyle went on four tours to Iraq as a Navy SEAL between 2003 and 2009 ,while his wife Taya began to raise their two children at home. Kyle wrote a memoir about his experiences in 2013, also called American Sniper , in which he recounted his deeds and those of his fellow SEALs.

TIME spoke with screenwriter Jason Hall about which parts of the film were drawn directly from Kyle’s life and his autobiography—which we’ll call “fact,” acknowledging that the accuracy of a memoir is subject to the constraints of memory—and which parts were added for the sake of narrative.

Chris Kyle did bull ride. In his memoir, he recounts traveling from city to city to do so. However, Kyle’s bull riding career ended when he fell off a bronco and was dragged until he became unconscious. The incident left him with pins in his wrists, among other injuries. It was then that he quit—not after a breakup, as is shown in the film.
