You're probably also aware that he, as a combat veteran with PTSD, was working with other veterans suffering from that.
|From wikipedia: Christopher Scott "Chris" Kyle (April 8, 1974 − February 2, 2013) was a United States Navy SEAL and the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history.|
You probably also know that he and a friend were working with a traumatized veteran who turned on them, and killed them both.
Now here's some more to the story:
In Anchorage today, the Chris Kyle Patriots Hospital will be officially dedicated by Mrs. Taya Kyle (Chris' widow), along with a number of invited dignitaries and friends.
From the hospital's website:
Chris Kyle Patriots Hospital provides an intensive dual track treatment program for military service members and veterans, who have experienced trauma and are in need of detoxification and/or rehabilitation for substance abuse.
[snip] Holistic in nature, the Chris Kyle Patriots Hospital is attentive to needs of the whole self—the mind, the body and the spirit, and therefore, provides services that enhance the mind, strengthen the body, and empower the spirit.
A facility to treat the effects of post-traumatic stress is sorely needed, and it's wonderful to see this.
