Gov. Palin has always demonstrated the utmost respect for the men and women who serve our country in uniform. During her time as Governor in Alaska, she frequently gave praise and honor to the Alaskans who served in varioius branches of the military. Even in her book, Going Rogue, she recalled the day her own son, Track, would "march in unison across a Fort Benning field in January 2008″ with other boot camp graduates –those men and women who "have a special quality that gives them a sense of honor and selfless duty."
Today was no exception, as she attended the 2-hour memorial service of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle at Cowboy Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Gov. Palin used her Facebook page to link to daughter Bristol’s web page at Patheos, as a way to encourage donations to the families of Kyle and his friend, Chad Littelfield, both killed earlier this month.
