Taya Kyle, wife of the late United States Navy Seal and American Sniper author Chris Kyle, has joined Fox News as a contributor.

Kyle will give commentary on military and family issues on many of Fox News’ daytime and primetime shows, the cable news network said in a press release Monday.

Since the death of her husband in 2013, Kyle has been active as an advocate for military families and women, Fox News said. She established the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation to honor her late husband and to provide help to families of military members and first responders. Last year, Kyle penned her own book, American Wife: A Memoir of Love, Service, Faith, and Renewal.

Her husband’s book was turned into a film of the same name by Clint Eastwood in 2014. Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller starred as Chris and Taya in the Academy Award-nominated film.
