During the funeral service, one of the Navy personnel in the funeral detail is wearing an Expert Shooting Ribbon on his right side. This is incorrect as he should be wearing the Expert Shooting Medal on his left side and awards that do not have an associated medal are worn on the right side in the form of a ribbon. See more »

Anyone remembers Nazi Sniper from "Inglourious Basterds"?
Let me start by saying that "American Sniper" has portrayed the true face of Americas great brainwashing weapon called "Hollywood".
As in the movie "Inglourious Basterds" where Dr Goebbels, Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945, has been given a right to direct a movie for Fuhrer himself, a national pride performance which depicts a war hero, German Sniper killing 300 "enemies" in three days. Now switch the roles with Clint Eastwood as a director, Fuhrer as a Americas high elite of nowadays, and Nazi Sniper as an American Sniper Chris Kyle.
A big irony this movie is, and as such it shows how much effort will American Movie Industry give in order to brainwash its own people.
