HOUSTON (AP) — Documents show the number of medals slain Navy Seal and “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle received is different than what he indicated in his book.

Navy documents obtained by an online magazine through an open records request show Kyle earned one Silver Star and three Bronze Stars with valor. In his best-selling book, Kyle wrote he had received two Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars.

A Navy spokeswoman confirmed the validity of the documents and says the Navy is investigating the discrepancy.

The Intercept first reported the discrepancy and posted the documents.

Kyle’s widow, Taya Kyle, didn’t immediately return a phone call Wednesday.

Kyle, regarded as the deadliest sniper in U.S. military history, was killed in 2013 at a Texas shooting range. A former Marine was convicted in his death.
