Craft International

Craft International is a world-class leader in security, logistics and training, and through its subsidiaries can provide almost any imaginable combination of services to its clients.

Crime, terrorism and military conflict are pervasive across the globe. Craft International recognizes that now, more than ever, military organizations, law enforcement agencies and law-abiding citizens of the U.S. and its allies must be prepared to the highest possible standard to defend their units, organizations, families, homes and their freedom against a wide array of constantly-evolving enemies.  Furthermore, with the multiple demands placed on our armed forces, it is increasingly difficult for many military units to get the range time necessary to fully prepare them for the challenges and hardships of combat. 

Craft aims to serve the training and security needs of military personnel, law enforcement officers, corporations and private citizens of the United States and its allies. The company was formed in 2009 by the coming together of two of the best sniper operators in the world with a shared vision of creating a world-class training and security organization.  From that point, Craft brought on a variety of experts and operators to further round out the organization.  Today, Craft is operating and training around the world and is recognized as a highest quality solution in the field


Chief Chris Kyle

USN, Co-Founder, President and CEO

Chief Chris Kyle (USN, honorably discharged in 2009) is one of the top snipers in the history of the American armed forces.  He served multiple combat tours in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.  In 2003, he earned Naval Special Warfare Sniper status.  His extensive combat experience includes sniping, close-quarters battle, reconnaissance, long-range desert patrols, personal security and the training of foreign allies.  In addition to working and training with the elite Navy SEALs, Chief Kyle has also served with units from the Army, Marine Corps and other government agencies.

Chief Kyle’s service in combat earned him two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation with Valor, and two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals with Valor.  Additionally, he was awarded the Grateful Nation Award, submitted by SOCOM and given by the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs. 

Sniping is Chief Kyle’s primary area of expertise.  Following his combat deployments, the Navy assigned Chief Kyle to be the Sniper Instructor for the West Coast Training Detachment.  He was the chief instructor for training Naval Special Warfare Sniper and Counter-Sniper teams prior to operational deployments.  He is also the author of the Naval Special Warfare Sniper Doctrine, which is the first Navy SEAL sniper manual.

In addition to serving as Craft’s President and CEO, Chief Kyle is also one of Craft’s primary instructors.
