A Jury in Erath County has found former Marine Eddie Ray Routh guilty of the Murder of Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield. While the state is not seeking the death penalty, a guilty conviction for Routh does mean an automatic life sentence.
I hope the silver lining, if one may be found in this tragic event, is the attention it brings to the very serious issue of PTSD and its effects on our troops.
Statistics regarding the incredibly high suicide rate amongst combat veterans is an issue that demands our attention, and we at Funker Tactical have made it a priority to support veteran charities and do as much as we can to raise not only awareness, but also funds to get our troops the support and service that they so desperately need.
Don’t keep silent. If you are, or know of anyone suffering the debilitating effects of PTSD, reach out. Let them know you are there to support them. Help is available, but we must do more for these men and women who have given so much, and left even more behind in the theatres of combat that they were involved.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Kyle and Littlefield Families.
Train well, train often, and support our vets!
