NewsMaxI was invited to speak to NewsMax TV about the various comments related to Chris Kyle and the sniper community at large that have been circulating. I am always honored to have the opportunity to represent the larger sniper community and dispel the myth that we are somehow heartless killing machines or knuckle dragging troglodytes.  Thank you NewsMax for the opportunity!  You can read the article created from the transcript: “Ex Marine Sniper: Michael Moore Clueless about Us.”
