Rangers Lead The Way!

April 22nd marks the two-year anniversary of the death of Army Ranger Pat Tillman, 2nd Ranger Battalion, in Afghanistan. Tillman, who turned down a multi-million dollar NFL contract to join the Army, volunteered for the Rangers, and served in Iraq before he was killed in a firefight in eastern Afghanistan in 2004. The fact that he was killed by friendly fire has done little to diminish his legacy, although the Army has been less than forthcoming with the facts about what really happened that day. Unlike Cindy Sheehan, his family has resisted the anti-military movement sweeping democratic circles, and instead opted to start the The Pat Tillman Foundation to help foster their sons legacy. Rangers truly do lead the way, and Pat Tillman was one of the finest. Rest well, brother.
