ARLINGTON - Thousands of people are expected to attend a public memorial service for former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle, who was shot to death at a Texas shooting range.
Mourners will gather Monday at Cowboys Stadium to pay tribute to the 38-year-old who was reputed to be the deadliest sniper in American military history.
Kyle left the Navy in 2009 after four tours of duty in Iraq and wrote the best-selling book "American Sniper."
Another Iraq War veteran, 25-year-old Eddie Ray Routh, has been charged in the killings of Kyle and his friend Chad Littlefield at a gun range Feb. 2.
Kyle will be buried at the Texas State Cemetery in Austin after a 200-mile funeral procession starting in the Dallas area Tuesday morning.
