DALLAS, TX – Thousands arrived at Cowboys Stadium to honor and remember former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. Kyle, who completed four tours of duty in Iraq and was reportedly the unit’s most lethal sniper, was gunned down at a Texas shooting range alongside his friend, Chad Littlefield on February 2nd.

On Tuesday, Kyle’s funeral procession will stretch 200 miles from Dallas to Austin, where he will be laid to rest at Texas State Cemetery.

As for Littlefield, his funeral was held Friday in Midlothian, Texas.

While families and friends say their goodbyes, the wheels of justice continue to turn.

Following a brief police chase in Midlothian, Iraqi War vet Eddie Ray Routh has been charged in the killings. It is believed Kyle and Littlefield brought Routh to the gun range that fateful day to work through Routh’s post-traumatic stress disorder. Routh is being held on $3 million bond.
