‘American Sniper’ Widow Praises Double Amputee Soldier

Taya Kyle, widow of “American Sniper” US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle praised Special Forces Soldier Sgt. Dana Bowman, the first double amputee to re-enlist in the U.S. Army.

Kyle saw Bowman at Sheridan, Wyoming rodeo this week, where he parachuted in with a huge American flag.

“I loved how all the patriots in Sheridan had their hats off honoring Sgt. Bowman and the flag as he dropped in!” Kyle posted on Instagram.

Great to see Sgt. Dana Bowman @sheridanwyorodeo last night! It's been a while since the kids and I last saw him! Check him out here and with his handsome son and me in the last picture! You can't see it in the pictures, but I loved how all the patriots in Sheridan had their hats off honoring Sgt. Bowman and the flag as he dropped in! Sgt. Bowman was special forces soldier and part of the elite parachute squadron the Golden Knights. He is the first double amputee veteran to re-enlist in the Army after the loss of his legs. He is President and Founder of the @haloforfreedom and travels the country reminding people to focus on their abilities instead of their disabilities. Thank you to all the awesome people in Sheridan, WY for an awesome Patriot Night at #sheridanwyorodeo It was extra special to be there with friends, my kids and my parents – most of you know my dad retired from the Marine Corps as a Lt. Colonel after a few years active duty and the reserves while I was growing up. Awesome night all around. More pics to follow. ❤️🇺🇸🤠

Kyle’s husband was a veteran sniper who served four tours in Iraq before he was murdered on February 2, 2013 by a veteran with PTSD whom he was trying to help. The Clint Eastwood-directed movie “American Sniper” tells his story.

“It was extra special to be there with friends, my kids and my parents,” Mrs. Kyle wrote of the rodeo.
