Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said she hopes Obama “pays his respects in some gesture of condolence” for someone who “sacrificed so much to keep him and all of us safe,” Tony Lee reported tonight in Breitbart News.
“We may never know to what extent Chris kept us free or how many lives he saved by his brave actions in the line of fire. But his fellow warriors know how important he was. My son Track couldn’t meet Chris when Todd and I first met him because Track was deployed to Iraq,” Palin wrote. “Then when we got to know Chris even better, our son was deployed in Afghanistan. We’ve met a lot of people in recent years, and Track has been privileged to meet them as well. But he said about Chris, ‘Mom, he’s the ONE person in the entire world I would be star-struck to meet. He’s it.’”
The Palins met Chris Kyle in Pella, IA, when The Undefeated premiered. Kyle was in charge of security. He befriended her husband Todd while they were on Stars Earn Stripes. Kyle was murdered last week along with Chad Littlefield by a fellow veteran who suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Kyle’s memorial service, was held today. Gov. Palin was present at the memorial service and will be at his funeral followed by a 200-mile procession to his grave site tomorrow.
