Love for Country vs. Love for Family

Storyboard Description

In his book "American Sniper", Chris Kyle talks about his amazing experiences serving our country as a Navy Seal. The main struggle he faced was a battle between love for country and love for family. His priorities were God, Country, then Family, rather than God, Family, and Country. He loved his wife and child greatly, but once he deployed, they lost a connection that they could not regain. Before one of his later tours in Iraq, Chris's wife Taya told him to quit while he could and not ship out, she said she wouldn't stop him from going, but if he did, she would know where his loyalty lied and their marriage would suffer. He still shipped out because he felt a greater sense of duty towards his country and his fellow soldiers than his family. I don't know whether Chris was right or wrong to continue fighting, but choosing to do so saved countless lives and protected our soldiers. Chris Kyle is one of the greatest heroes our country has ever known, and his sacrifice will not be forgotten.
