Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed a bill on Tuesday designating a segment of U.S. Hwy 287 in Midlothian as the “Chris Kyle Memorial Highway.” Chris Kyle was a Navy SEAL and author of the New York Times bestseller American Sniper.

Kyle is reported to have achieved 150 kills as a Navy SEAL sniper, the most of any sniper in U.S. military history.

Midlothian is 25 miles southwest of Dallas, Texas.

After the ceremony, Governor Abbott tweeted from his personal Twitter account, “Today I signed a law dedicating part of Hwy. 287 in Midlothian as #ChrisKyle Memorial Hwy. We honor our military heroes.”
