ARLINGTON, Texas (CNN) — A huge memorial was held in Dallas, at Cowboys Stadium Monday, for retired Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

He was perhaps the deadliest sniper in American military history.

Kyle was shot and killed,allegedly by another Iraq war veteran, nine days ago.

Kyle became famous for the best-selling book “American Sniper.”

He will be buried at Texas State Cemetery in Austin.

His wife, Tanya Kyle, spoke today at the Cowboy’s Stadium.

“I stand before you a broken woman but I am now and always will be the wife of a man who was a warrior both on and off the battlefield,” she said.
