Nine years ago today, a man who embodied the American dream chose to fight to protect this dream rather than to live it. Giving up a multi-million dollar contract to play professional football, Pat Tillman decided to join the Army Rangers soon after the September 11 attacks. After serving several tours in combat, he was killed by friendly fire during a firefight with Afghan militia soldiers. He was posthumously awarded multiple decorations including the Purple Heart and Silver Star. A seemingly unstoppable man in life, he will be remembered for his bravery, leadership and dedication. You can carry out his legacy through the Pat Tillman Foundation, providing educational scholarships and resources to veterans, active service members and MilSpouses.
