    A Brotherhood is Family Away from Home  As we all know American

    A Brotherhood is Family Away from Home
     As we all know American Sniper is a tough story to hear, but it’s also rather inspiring.  Chris Kyle, known as the “most lethal sniper in U.S. military history,” also depicts a great story of the struggles for military families and relationships.  After going through what all young adults go through, the self-discovery stage, Kyle found himself in BUD/S training for the United States Navy Seals.  It was soon after his training he met his wife in a bar one evening with his crew, and soon after that the war in Iraq had began, and he was immediately deployed to Fallujah.  After convincing himself he was indestructible and that his priorities were “God, Country, Family”, he found himself spending more time making kills than he did with his own family.  It wasn’t until serving a total of 5 deployments that he was able to come home and fully readjust to civilian life.  
    A major theme throughout this book is the idea of teamwork.  It’s very clear that the brotherhood formed within and also between platoons is the survival mechanism for those fighting for our freedom.  Chris Kyle’s story was one of great inspiration for me.  Some saw it as a tragedy but for me, it encouraged me and reassured me of my path into the Marine Corps.  
    This book was written in a way that anyone of any knowledge could understand.  Although it had a great amount of military jargon, he keeps it simple and understandable.  Unfortunately to me it never felt like there was a climax.  It felt as if the stories were never-ending and just went on and on.  Story wise, it would have been more entertaining if there had been a time that Chris Kyle was unsure of a shot he made. 
    Overall I would give this book a nine out of ten.  This book is inspiring and truthfull.  I encourage everyone to read this book.  It gives a real understanding of the military lifestyle and what all they go through for us.  It’s a very humbling book and that’s just what this world needs is a kick in the butt towards humility.  I also recommend Lone Survivor by Marcus Luttrell and Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand.  Although these are both well known and have been converted into films, they are both inspiring stories as well.
