Interesting how the media looks upon most of the men and women who join the service, they can't understand why someone would do it. Many of the liberal media elites look down upon those who serve.

Yes I agree we should all remember Pat and all the men and women who put them selves in harms way for this great country. Pat was one tough guy and an inspiration to me every day.

Observation, you seem to forget that Tillman WAS a liberal elite.

Interestingly enough, he was also an atheist. That makes Michael Bidwell's comment rather ironic.

outside of your drinking the kool aid of the religous right, what do you have to back up our statement. Give me something other than "everybody knows..."It seems to me that MSM seems to respect the military and the servicemen and women.

there are asmany from unknowns from small towns who sacrificed but are not considered celebrity's and worthy of national recoginition. Is Tillmans' life somehow more valuable and his his families lost more significant because he gave up a job paying millions to serve?. So the guy who enlisted because he had few job options out of high school is less worthy of recognition??

I'm sorry but he threw his life away in an unnecessary war that was started by the worst President in history. A waste.

This guy quit a prosperous job to be part of an illegal invasion, was killed by his own troops, then our gov't lied about it.

This is not a heroic tale, it's a sick tragedy.

And please don't start with the tired "protecting our freedoms" bit, Bush/Cheney did more to threaten our freedoms than the average Iraqi/Afghani ever will.

I swear this country gets more like Nazi Germany everyday...

To Bill Ottinger and Get Real - Do you know where he died? This was Afghanastan, not Iraq. I think you should learn to separate the two.

Pat Tillman went to war to defend the nation tolerant of Thomas Jefferson and John Adams after it had been attacked by religious fanatics unable to abide plurality of beliefs.

Out of respect for the agnostic Mr. Tillman, it is to be hoped that for once Mr. Warner will refrain from his unseemly habit of turning nationally televised sporting events into a pulpit for Jesus!

NOT! He gave his life just like others before him and after him so you can say STUPID comments like this. He is a real hero along with the millions of others that have served for a higher cause.

If you really feel that way then why not move to one of those great Middle Eastern countries or maybe China. If you really feel your rights have been violated and that this country is like Nazi Germany. Buddy you are so clueless it is not even funny. You can actually say something this stupid because you have freedoms. Also please inform the rest of us as to WHAT FREEDOMS of YOURS has be taken away and violated?

Back in 2001, there was no IRAQ war. That war came in 2003. The only war at the time was the war on terror when we were fighting against the Taliban, the same bozos that aided and abetted Al Qaida who were responsible for the attacks on 9-11. Remember them? Tillman left the Cardinals after the 2001 season to enlist in the Army Rangers, so leaving a lucrative football contract behind to volunteer and serve in an illegal war was not on his mind unless you consider fighting against the Taliban an illegal war

In this manís mind, he was doing something honorable and noble. Something that I would venture to say has never, nor will ever, cross your mind! And if think that this country is getting more and more like Nazi Germany, you better hope not. You and your elk would be the first ones teed up for the ovens and the gas chambers.

Fine... they respect the service members..they would just never, under ANY circumstances serve in the armed forces! They'll leave the fighting and dying for someone else to do in order to protect the freedom of the press that they so dearly covert. Wouldn't surprise me to see these same individuals compromise military secrets and put soldiers in harms way just to get a scoop on a story. Never confuse the ethics, or lack of same, of todays MSM with that of their fore fathers.

Okay. Now explain to me what the higher cause was. Getting rid of the Taliban? They are stronger than ever. Are we safer now? Sorry, the answer is no. We are more hated than ever. Will someone please tell me what the higher cause was because I missed that lesson.
