Pat Tillman has just been awarded the Silver Star

Postby stomperrob » Sat May 01, 2004 8:59 pm

I realize this is probably the wrong forum so please forgive but I think this story transcends (sp?) all sports. Pat Tillman has been posthumously awarded the Silver Star for gallantry on the battlefield for the action that cost him his life. For the full story of what this true hero did, see:

Is it just me, or do his awards keep getting higher and higher as the days pass?

Sometimes it takes awhile for all the details to come out - or are you implying he's undeserving?????

Very nice. ;-D

My families thoughts and prayers are with all our troops and their families.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
