Kyle, become the deadliest US Army with 160 confirmed deaths shooter, was killed a year ago by another former soldier suffering from post-traumatic stress.
The trial of the murderer, Eddie Routh, takes place these days in a small rural town in Texas, far from the glamour of the so-called Mecca of cinema.
Death sniper, received a hero who reincorporated into civilian life, hit a society that has starred in more than a decade of wars winless in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The trial is an expression of trauma that these conflicts have left thousands of American soldiers.
Suicides, depression, anxiety, are some of the effects of post-traumatic stress syndrome suffered by thousands of former US soldiers.
Mental wounds, which are sometimes more serious than physical, mark those men whose country sent them to fight in distant geographies and returned laden with traumas.
As before happened after the attack on Vietnam, many of the fighters in Iraq and Afghanistan have failed to rein.
Integrate into society and barely survive today as victims of wars do not end.
The murder of Chris Kyle, whose history as a sniper in Iraq includes Clint Eastwood, is part of the reality of a country whose recent history has been marked by war, but Hollywood is endeavoring to sweeten the pill and even give away an Oscar Award.
