Chris Kyle grave site
« on: February 20, 2013, 10:15:02 AM »
Last weekend I went on a road trip to the Austin/San Antonio area.  I spent the night in San Antonio, and in the morning I was trying to decide if I wanted to go to the Alamo or to the Texas State Cemetery in Austin to visit with relatives that stay there.  I chose the cemetery (mainly because I have never been there).

As I walked through the front gate I noticed several wreaths, they were for Chris Kyle's grave site.  Here are some of the pictures that I took. 

In the second picture you can see the cemetery entrance.

Too bad no one in the administration could acknowledge his loss.

Wow, great photos. Thanks for sharing. I plan to stop by on my next trip down there. I wish I could have been at the memorial. I am glad Texas gave him a Texas sized send-off as much of the rest of the nation ignored it. If people haven't seen images of the procession from Dallas to Austin, it is amazing. Every overpass had flags and every car stopped on the side of the road as it went by. Massive amount of respect.

Not even a half-staff flag.

That is why I have avoided looking at  or commenting on this thread until now. Can't keep my eyes dry.
