Before he was murdered, Mr. Kyle had written an autobiography by the same title, and in the pages described the decorations he received during his decade of service. In the memoir, Chris wrote:

"All told, I would end my career as a SEAL with two Silver Stars and five Bronze [Stars], all for valor."

However, The Intercept revealed that this isn't an honest statement after all!

Filed under: Photos!Nick JonasCrazzzzyViral: News

Nick wasn't the only one who thought the lights came from alien activity!

Those crazy blue lights spotted over southern California this weekend caused the public to go into an extra-terrestrial frenzy, and even some celebs were buying in to the hype!

On Monday, Nick Jonas told ITV's This Morning that he couldn't get enough of all the pictures and videos of the bizarre event that were floating around the internet, saying:

"I'm obsessed with UFO stuff in general, so I'm all over this. That blue light freaks me out in the best way possible."

The 23-year-old joked with the UK talk show hosts that he's planning on heading back stateside so he can find the alleged aliens responsible for the bright sight, adding:

"I'm really excited to get back to LA; I leave in a couple of hours, and I'm going to go try find the UFO. I'm very excited!"

LOL! Unfortunately for the pop star, US military officials have shed some light (see what we did there?) on the dazzling display that left people panicking, and they say it has nothing to do with any other intelligent life forms!

It turns out the USS Kentucky was was running a missile test flight off the California coast that had been ordered by the Navy Strategic Systems Programs.

The Pentagon explained:

"The tests were part of a scheduled, ongoing system evaluation test. Launches are conducted on a frequent, recurring basis to ensure the continued reliability of the system. Each test activity provides valuable information about our systems, thus contributing to assurance in our capabilities."

While Nick's UFO dreams may have been shattered this time around, he's not the only star who believes we aren't alone in the universe!

The Standard Hotel In NYC Under Hot Water For Turning Away Navy Sailor In Full Dress Over Memorial Day Weekend

no title

A sailor in full dress uniform was turned away from The Standard Hotel in New York by a bouncer over the weekend.

Yes, Memorial Day Weekend.

The anonymous Navy Officer was decked out in her all-whites trying to get into the Top of The Standard lounge with three of her friends who happened to be wearing civilian attire when she was told she wasn't allowed in for breaking the venue's dress code.

And while her white uniform was technically against the lounge's cocktail rules, the sailor and her companions tried to explain that military uniforms trump all other forms of clothes — especially since she was in full dress.

However, no one at the Standard helped the situation, and now the entire hotel is in hot water for disrespecting our service men and women during Fleet Week, of all times!

no title

In the wake of all the sexual assault allegations against Bill Cosby, the Navy is revoking his honorary title of chief petty officer.

Navy Secretary Ray Mabus and Master Chief Petty Officer Michael Stevens announced in a statement Thursday that the allegations are serious and conflict with the core values of the Navy.

Bill had previously served as a hospital corpsman from 1956 until 1960 when he was honorably discharged as a 3rd Class Petty Officer.

This announcement comes on the heels of Bill breaking his silence by tweeting out his thanks to supporters Whoopi Goldberg and Jill Scott.

We wonder what consequences Bill will face next.

We have a feeling Vice President Joe Biden was NOT happy to hear this news.

Hunter Biden, the youngest of Joe's children, was discharged from his administrative position with the Navy for…COCAINE.

The discharge happened last February, when Hunter was serving as public affairs officer, a position he had held since 2012. At the time of the discharge, the reason for his dismissal was kept confidential and it was unclear why the youngest Biden was asked to leave such a prestigious position.

When he was discharged, Hunter's attorney released the following statement:
