WAR/FOOTBALL: Pat Tillman Update

Remember Pat Tillman, the former Arizona Cardinal who walked away from a multi-million dollar contract shortly after 9/11 in order to enlist in the Army? Such an admirable act requires the occasional update. Read about him here. I wish him and his brother luck in rendering their service to our country.

To the Tillman Family:
You all have my sincere and deepest sympathy on your loss. No one anywhere on earth can give more than one's life for something cherished. Thank you so much for giving your all for the freedom and safety of all of us back in the USA.
Respectfully,
Walter G. Kennedy
MSGT, (ret.)

In all realmsof life; politics , busimess, sports, etc. those men are a pale comparison to Mr. Tilman.
He, His parents and family have contributed more than they can ever imagine to what America is. If politicians had an ounce of the courage that teh Tilmans's have shown-- we would be in good stead. My heart is heavy and greatful to you.

It was great watching Pat play in the NFL, but an Honor to see him give and sacrifice so much of himself and his country. My heart is heavy today to see such a talented man with so much pride in what he believed in. As a military member my self I salute you Pat for giving all you had in the NFL, the Military, but most importantly in LIFE... Rest in Peace. A soilder not be be forgotten.
