  • After Chris took the shot he was given the name "Devil of Ramadi" by the Iraqi Army. The set a bounty on his head for $20,000 and increased it to $80,000 mainly because of how lethal he was as a sniper during the war. 
  • Chris felt bad leaving to go home from the war. He felt like he was letting his brothers down. He stated that, "Nothing that I had accomplished earlier could erase the feeling that I was letting my brothers down."
