200-mile Funeral Procession for Chris Kyle Began Today
The funeral procession for murdered Navy SEAL Chris Kyle began its 200-mile journey today.
The white hearse carrying Kyle’s flag-draped coffin is headed for Texas State Cemetery in Austin.
People are lining the streets and highway overpasses in North Texas and cars are pulling over in respect for the fallen hero as the procession makes its way to his final resting place.
It began under a light rain from Midlothian, about 25 miles southwest of Dallas where the 38-year-old former SEAL had live4d with his family.
Approximately 200 motorcycles, police cruisers and other vehicles are taking part in the procession.
Kyle, celebrated as the deadliest sniper in US military history, and his friend Chad Littlefield were shot multiple times by a former marine at a Texas shooting range Feb. 2.
