What a sad story, and yet one that should fill anyone who reads it with pride.
This is the stuff fiction is made from, yet it is all to real for those who have known Pat Tillman.
Sometimes we need a human face and story of this war to bring the reality home.
This man had a bright future in the NFL, one only a few could ever dream of, yet after the events of 9/11 he was motivated to put his dream aside to
go fight for his country.
God Bless his soul, his family and all who have known him.
He gave us the ultimate gift and brought the reality of war home for all to see.
I am proud of all of these young women and men fighting this war on terrorism, each and everyone is there for a reason, all are aware of the risks,
sometimes we forget what some of them have given up to go fight for the rest of us who are either unwilling or unable to.
God bless them all, and may god bless the USA!
