Kyle planned on a full 20-year career in the U.S. Marine Corps until Oct. 16, 2006. On patrol in Iraq, a roadside bomb exploded under Kyle's humvee. He was pulled from the smoking wreck with a severe injury to his right hand. That would be the last day he would ever use his right hand again. And after almost two years of rehabilitation, the pain was too much. Kyle decided to have it amputated. But he did it his own way.
