Kyle deployed to Iraq twice, the second time as the only Marine scout sniper in his company. During his third deployment, this time to Afghanistan, Kyle was leading a dismounted patrol when a pressure plate improvised explosive device detonated under his left foot. The blast amputated his left leg and severely injured his right leg. Still, he remained conscious and coordinated his own medical evacuation. Kyle retained command of his squad until support arrived. After multiple lifesaving surgeries, Kyle returned to the US, where he received physical therapy treatments.
