A new report claims Chris Kyle may have lied about how many medals he said he had in his memoir "American Sniper," and the U.S. Navy is investigating.
The Intercept said it obtained documents that appear to show Kyle earned one Silver Star and three Bronze Stars — even though he claimed he had two Silver and five Bronze stars.
The outlet also cites unnamed sources who allege Kyle was advised by one of his former commanders to fix the number of awards he put in a draft of his book. But that update apparently wasn't made before publishing.
