Most people have heard of Pat Tillman, the guy who gave up millions in the NFL to serve in the military, and who ultimately died in a case of friendly fire in Afghanistan. There isn't much more to say. This guy felt enough for his country that he would enlist out of the blue to fight the fight. Hard to criticize someone who's willing to die for what they believe (the matter of how to regard those willing to kill for their beliefs, especially if combined with the aforementioned, is a little dodgier), and this guy gave up a lot with no provocation. Kudos to him. One of the truly worthy was killed.
The facts around Tillman's death have been contested from the start, but they take on a new importance with the disclosures by the man he saved right before three American bullets tore up his skull. I'm disgusted that these people are still considered vets. That the government has obfuscated both fronts to the extent where we don't know what the hell is happening. Other than we are not getting Osama.
This was in the Afghanistan theater, where I think the real war is being fought, or was before Dubya screwed up the entire Middle East. Real soldiers fighting the right cause, and one of the signature figures got pegged by a friendly.
