Yesterday was the 9th anniversary of the death of the heroic Pat Tillman, who gave up his profession football career to serve his nation at war. Yesterday, today, and everyday, Got Your 6 honors and remembers this man, as a friend and brother, whose spirit of leadership, service and love for country endures. We are grateful for the Pat Tillman Foundation and all the Tillman Military Scholars who carry on Pat’s legacy.
