Being a sports and political junkie my worlds collided when the Tillman boys joined the military. They were motivated by the 9-11 incident. Their decision stunned the world. Walking away from lucrative careers to serve their country is honorable. No one would question their sacrifice.
There is NO SHAME in being killed by friendly fire. Unfortunately, this is a sad reality of war.
The SHAME is how Rummy and his minions treated his death. They lied to his family and the world. Those involved should be court-martialed.
Booman titled his post "I need to calm down." Maybe he shouldn't, nor should the rest of us.
