Accolades for the CKMB

“I had the honor of coming to the Chris Kyle Memorial Benefit [2015] this year. I flew in from out of state not feeling well. I almost completely lost my voice. My grandmother passed away as soon as I got to Texas and my friend that I met there decided to leave on Saturday morning and she’s the one that had the car. I was faced with several obstacles, but decided to get out of my comfort zone and attend the benefit dinner by myself and I am sure glad I did. I cannot tell you what that benefit did for me inside my soul. I’ve had a hard life and struggled for years not knowing who I was and when Chris died, I adopted his love for this Country and figured it out. He helps people everywhere, not just military veterans. Personally, I have never served in the Armed Forces but I wish I had. I have two sons serving and a cousin who is retired military. That did not even help me figure it out. I am a damn proud American and that is all I need to be. So, thank you and Deby for raising a couple of fine sons. I befriended Bruce Heckendorn and Bobby Henline while I was there, but really wanted to introduce myself to you and your family, but I could barely talk and you were really busy. I would love to be a sponsor next year and raise some money for the organization. I would also like to volunteer next year. Anything you need. Thank you for everything you do. Much respect, A.N.”

“We would like to thank you again for letting us be a part of the 2nd Annual Benefit for your dearest son Chris. We had a wonderful time and have high hopes that there will be more to come. I must say that Jeff has to be one of the nicest gentlemen and I know Chris is so proud of the wonderful and fantastic endeavors he has taken on. Your family means the world to us and if we can help out in any capacity, please do not hesitate to ask. We live out of state and would be so proud to help in any way we can. ‘May mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you.’  Jude 1:2 We certainly have plans to attend the benefit next year and please do not hesitate to ask for help! We love you all. You are loved… There is no small request even if it is simply to pray. D.G.”
