For those unfamiliar with the plot of American Sniper, the movie is about Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper), a Navy SEAL sniper credited with more than 160 confirmed kills. The movie, directed by Clint Eastwood, depicts Kyle’s four tours in Iraq as well as his relationship with his wife (Sienna Miller) and the effects of war on his life stateside. Continue reading

Remember what he always called us? The Gruesome Twosome. He told us to stick together. No matter what. God, what the hell happened to us?”  Continue reading
