Daily One Inch Button - Pat Tillman

Where to begin? Pat Tillman was a remarkable football player who, unlike so many sports heroes, decided to turn away the big money out of his loyalty to his team. He eventually decided to enlist in the US Army out of loyalty to his country but he tragically lost his life in what was initially thought to be an ambush but turned out to be a friendly fire attack.

The details of his death are still being investigated. One of the more controversial aspects of his death is that it was attempted to be made to look like hostile fire to take the pressure off those who accidentally caused it.

If you want to know more about Pat Tillman, check out this excellent Pat Tillman tribute video. Here is another excellent tribute video.
