Two Songs Drop on February 22nd Dedicated to American Sniper, Chris Kyle

Midlothian, Texas (February 22, 2016) – The Chris Kyle Frog Foundation, dedicated to serving military and first responders through meaningful interactive experiences that enrich family relationships, today announced that the Foundation will benefit from funding that is raised from the song “The Legend.” January of 2015 Jim Kinsey, executive producer of Skull Bound TV, headed for the annual SHOT show in Las Vegas. Along his twelve-hour journey something happened that would inspire some of the biggest names in the music industry to come together to carry on the spirit of an American Hero and United States Navy SEAL Chris Kyle. “Lyrics started flowing in as if someone was whispering them in my ear. I pulled over and had my girlfriend Jana finish the last leg of our journey. I grabbed my iPhone and began to type down everything that was coming in. Four hours later I had a great start on what would later become a multi-generational song called “The Legend”. After meeting Chris Kyle in January of 2013 at a private Kryptek party in Las Vegas, Jim had him sign a copy of his new book American Sniper, which chronicled the most lethal sniper in US history. A twenty-minute conversation led to planning an antelope hunt in Eastern Montana with he and Jim’s girlfriend Jana Waller, the host of Skull Bound TV. That was the last conversation the Marine and SEAL would have. Two weeks later on 2-2-2013 Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield would be murdered. “I remember the moment like yesterday. I was sitting on the couch looking through the social media news feed when I saw a... Read More

Celebrating Veterans Day and CKFF’s Anniversary

Celebrating Veterans Day and CKFF’s Anniversary Dear Friends, Like many of you, I am surprised when milestones come along. It reminds me how quickly time flies. A year ago today, the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation (CKFF) whose mission is to honor God and Country by serving families who serve, officially became a reality. So much has happened in just one year! My children and I have been blessed to travel this country meeting many of you, hearing your stories of both the challenges and the joys of service. We feel fortunate to connect those who serve with those who stand along side our service members in passionate support. No matter what we hear in the media, there is a beautiful majority of people out there who do get it! The team at CKFF took a leap of faith. We started down a path that seemed overwhelming at the time. A path serving a niche not being helped. We envisioned a foundation serving marriages of first responders and military members, and our passion came with lofty goals. I am relieved and emotional to tell you, we are making a difference. We do it with prayer and we do it with all of you! Without a doubt we are nothing without your support, and we are grateful! Less than 1% of our citizens have agreed to give their lives to this country in military or first responder service. Chris said, “You don’t have to be a warrior to have that warrior spirit.” What can the other 99% of us do to show the spirit Chris talked about? We can stand for those who serve. We can prevent...
