Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield Memorial Highway

Christopher Scott "Chris" Kyle (April 8, 1974 – February 2, 2013) was aUnited States Navy SEAL and known as the most lethal sniper in American military history, with 160 confirmed kills (out of 255 claimed kills), although these statistics have not been released by the Pentagon. In March 2013, we made an attempt to block Texas HB 3520 naming a portion of Dallas' Central Expressway after 43rd President George W. Bush. Rep. Branch was successful passing an amended HB3520 during the 82nd Legislative Session. Now working with Rep. Jim Pitts from District 10, we're hoping to name a portion of HWY 287 or 67 after Chris Kyle. It's also important to remember Chad Littlefield was also killed on that fateful day and is just as deserving to be memorialized. I hope you'll sign, to honor all the fallen warriors, like Chris, and let any American that drives the memorial highway will never forget the sacrifice not just of Chris, but other fallen warriors. They must never be forgotten.
