(AUSTIN, Texas) — Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush today said he hopes Texans will forever remember Chris Kyle's life of service to our veterans and praised Gov. Greg Abbott's decision to declare Feb. 2 as "Chris Kyle Day." 

"Chris Kyle deserves to be remembered for what he lived for, fought for and died for – caring for his fellow service members — not just on the battlefield but off it, too," Bush said.  "His last heroic act was helping a veteran struggling with PTSD. Texans should look to Chris Kyle's selfless dedication to our veterans and pledge to do all we can to honor this great American patriot." 

As Commissioner of the Texas General Land Office, Bush concurrently serves as Chairman of the Texas Veterans Land Board, helping veterans own a piece of Texas. Veterans who have questions about potential benefits or need help getting access to services can call 1-800-252-VETS. 

"When our veterans return home, it’s important that we support them as they rejoin our local communities. I am committed to honoring Chris Kyle’s legacy by supporting those who are transitioning from active duty to civilian life."
