American Sniper: The Autobiography of the most lethal sniper in U.S. Military History. Christopher Scott, Chris, Kyle was a legend for all who know his story. Could you imagine leaving your country for a dangerous war zone that could potentially result in you coming home in a casket? Most likely thats a no, considering now only one percent of the population serves in the Unites States Armed Forces.

I think he is a modern day American Hero because, out of the comfort of his home, he enlisted into the U.S. navy and fought to keep the US safe and to put his life on the line. Chris was born on April 8, 1979 in Odessa, Texas. He grew up on a ranch. His father was a church deacon. He liked to hunt deer and pheasant.

At first, he seemed helpless, especially when he was saved by Teddy and his family. However, soon afterward, you could tell Rikki- Tikki was courageous and willing to fight for them. Rikki was very loving to the family. Teddy’s mother was concerned for Teddy at first, but she eventually realized Rikki-Tikki could protect him. I would probably react the same way.
