ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Chris Kyle is a man many know as the deadliest sniper in U.S. history, an American hero. Now, after years of planning, his statue will stand tall in his birth place of Odessa.

The statue stands 17 feet tall and cost nearly $1 million, but the message behind the limestone and granite memorial will live on for years to come.

The plaza is located at 8050 E. Highway 191, behind the Medical Center Health System Center for Health and Wellness in Odessa.
