There's a Memorial Plaque down at Fort Benning honoring the men and leaders of the 6th Rangers. It reads:

"In Honor of the Men of the 6th Ranger Battalion who liberated the 512 Prisoners of War at Cabanatuan, Philippine Islands, 30 January 1945. This list courtesy of John Cook (POW) who honored the 6th Rangers & Alamo Scouts at the dedication of a Memorial Plaque located at Fort Benning, GA 1999."

Kyle was one of these men.
