What would Tillman do?

Success - Article sent! close

I would like to salute Arizona State University for unveiling a statue to Pat Tillman at their new Football Complex, which also has photos and Images of the former player and Army Ranger. They are also all around the campus, and around the town too.

Tillman e was in the NFL making the "big money" but joined the Army in the wake of 9/11 as an Army Ranger. He died in Afghanistan due to friendly fire in 2004. He went and fought for this flag, and the freedom for those players to have that right to voice their dissent.

I'll leave you with this question: If Pat Tillman were still alive today, what would he think, feel or say about these actions that those players have done and are doing toward this flag that he gave up so much for?
