It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived. General George S. Patton
Please pray for the family of Army Ranger Pat Tillman, the NFL player who left the Arizona Cardinals and a $3.6 million contract behind to serve his country. He was killed this week in an ambush in Afghanistan. His brother Kevin, a pro baseball player, also joined and served with Pat in the same Ranger platoon.
I'm sure there will be memorial funds, scholarships, etc. available for Pat's wife and family in the near future. I plan on donating, and will post links when they are available.
"Pat Tillman Stadium" (yes, without the addition of some stupid corporate sponsor's name) seems highly appropriate, as does the permanent retirement of his jersey, #40. You can make these ideas known to the NFL, as I also plan to do.
