Iraq War Vet Facing Murder Charges

February 28th, 2013 at 1:27 pm

Chicago IL Criminal Law AttorneyA father of two small children and a loving husband who dedicates his life to our nation is a hero. One who put his life on the line for four tours of duty in Iraq, scouting out 150 insurgents to rid them to become the United States deadliest sniper, to come home and help his fellow veterans, becomes a legend. Respect for such a patriotic family man should go wherever he goes. Unfortunately, the things that we are most passionate about can hurt us.

Former marine and post-traumatic stress disorder victim, Eddie Ray Routh, has been charged with shooting Navy SEAL sniper great, Chris Kyle and neighbor friend, Chad Littlefield in a Glen Close, Texas, gun range. He is charged with three counts of murder after having a $3 million bond set. As a PTSD war veteran, Routh was probably spending time with Kyle because Kyle’s heart was to help other war veterans through the transition of being back home from the war front. Though they did not meet through Kyle’s organization for war veterans with PTSD, Kyle was known to help anyone he met.

A decorated veteran serving from 1999-2009, Kyle achieved many accomplishments:

Two Silver Stars; five Bronze Stars of Valor; two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement medals; and one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation. He made his legacy known through co-writing “American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History” with Scott McEwen.

Though our hearts can help many people, sometimes it can lead to a serious and dangerous situation. If you are in a place where boundaries have been crossed, contact a criminal lawyer in the Illinois area. An attorney who knows the law inside and out makes a world of difference for your safety and well-being.
