Viral photo: SEALs mount dozens of Tridents on Chris Kyle’s casket!/CeceSurfCityUsa/status/301462583452499970

A photo of Chris Kyle’s burial has surfaced on social media, and it appears to show that more than 100 Navy SEAL trident pins were pounded into the casket by Kyle’s fellow warriors.   A fitting send-off for an American hero.

Just saw a picture of Chris Kyle’s casket with 160 SEAL pins embedded on top. Unbelievably moving. A true American hero.
