Sarah Palin is attending Chris Kyle’s funeral today, the heroic sniper who was tragically shot by a fellow Iraqi war veteran suffering from PTSD at a shooting range in Texas. The former Alaska governor expressed her gratitude for Kyle’s service on her Facebook page – suggesting that President Obama should do the same.

“Todd and I are in Dallas today to attend Chris Kyle’s memorial and funeral service. I find it sad to see that flags aren’t flying at half staff for this American hero. We’re surrounded today by American patriots here in Texas – by Chris’ fellow veterans and active duty warriors. In honor of them, I hope our commander in chief pays his respects in some gesture of condolence for their comrade in arms who sacrificed so much to keep him and all of us safe.
