Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) announced Friday that he was declaring Monday “Chris Kyle Day” to honor the late Navy SEAL who served four tours in Iraq.

Kyle, who died at a shooting range on Feb. 2, 2013, was credited with the most kills in U.S. military history, and his best-selling autobiography “American Sniper” formed the basis of the recently released blockbuster film.

Abbott tweeted about his declaration, including a photo of Texas-native Kyle. The governor spoke to military veterans Friday on his legislative priorities for state lawmakers, including offering free mental health screenings and making it easier for veterans to get their businesses up and running, a local NBC affiliate reported.

    As an Arizonan I Salute the Gov. of Texas for his decision. May Gov. Abbott be always remembered for this Proclamation to the State of Texas and for Chris Kyle’s family.

    Good for them for doing this, many, many more need to be honored. They are doing the job they were sent there to do.
