Transcript of American Sniper

Chris grew up is a small town in Central Texas. It was here where he learned about "family and traditional values like self reliance, and watching out for your family," as he said in the first chapter of his book. "When I was old enough I started working on a family ranch and eventually became a cowboy and worked on another farm and earned a lot of money. (Kyle 14)
When Chris started to wonder where his life was going, he considered joining the Navy. Before deciding this, he had been in an accident in which he had to get pins in his hand. The recruiters noticed this and they declined him. A few weeks later, while he was working a ranch to earn money the Navy called him back and set him up to train in the BUD/S. Oh Now You Need Me! In Nasiria, Iraq, Chris Kyle was protecting troops from afar. While the soldiers got out of their vehicle, a woman came out onto the street. He noticed her instantly and as she was about to sacrifice herself and her newborn, Chris shot the grenade out of her hand, then again to blow it up. Even though he didn't want to kill the girl, he saved the soldier lives. Ouch! Chris Kyle was at a distance of 2100 yards with only himself and his watcher against the 20 enemy troops approaching them. Kyle and his Spotter lined up Kyles shots and took out every single enemy in only 14 bullets. (Impressive) Wow! Quote “Great way to fight a war - be prepared to defend yourself for winning.” (Kyle 227) “The joke was that President Bush only declared war when Starbucks was hit. You can mess with the U.N. all you want, but when you start interfering with the right to get caffeinated, someone has to pay.” ( Kyle 159) OH Burn! I say he was getting upset because coffee was more important than american troops. What I think he is saying is that you can't win if you're dead. The True Reason My original book was Between a Rock and a Hardplace but Niles Powell came back to school with that book so I said we can't do the same book. My friend Cory Hasley then told me read the American Sniper book. So I ended up reading this book. People Involved Chris Kyle- Pro Sniper
Marc Lee- Spotter a.k.a his best bud
Entire U.S Navy
His Wife- Taya Kyle When & Where The actions in this book were from the year 2007. Also with parts of 2008. The setting of this book was all over the place but started in Texas and ended in Iraq. History American Sniper By: Chris Kyle Project By: Michael Miller Conclusion I believe the theme for this book would be. You can't win if you don't die trying. The reason why would be because every single mission he took he knew there was a chance he wouldn't make it back to his family. Also he chose to go and fight for our country in the first place. What I want to know His watcher and best friend was killed on a watching mission for Kyle. So I want to know if Kyle got his friend back home for a proper burial. Literary Terms Foreshadowing: Chris Kyle was on a mission in Nasiria Iraq laying down at his sniper site protecting the troops on foot at long distance. He noticed the troops were all trying to evacuate from a bomb. So his troops said to him over call. "We need back up" So Kyle got out of his cover site and ran straight for his troops. He took out 6 enemy troops while running. 1 of the troops he was covering for was his best friend Marc. Chris told Marc " Man you're going to get killed out there if you're not more careful. There next mission they were at Marc lee was Kyles watcher. They were both laying on a high suspended hill covered by leaves. They were hunting for another sniper about 1000 yards away. Chris asked Marc whats at our 6 o'clock. He received no response. He looked over and saw Marc lying there with a bullet hole in the side of his head.

Irony: The Navy said they didn't want to have Chris Kyle on their team so they sent him away. A week later they called him back asking for him back.
