Pat Tillman Followup

I found a short followup on Pat Tillman, the football player written about in T-Mag issue 248. He left a career worth several million dollars to serve this country with the Army Rangers.

According to this article, he’s in the 75th Ranger Regiment and was deployed with his brother a few weeks ago, probably to Iraq.

He could have been paid over 3 million for 3 years and have a fairly pampered living. His new job pays between $1,022 and $1,433 a month and he could be killed serving this country.
An American and a T-Man at his finest.

He must also love what he does and takes pride in it… People choose diffrent career paths for diffrent reason… He may have found the RANGER career more rewarding then getting 3 million for 3 years money is a montary happiness… Money isn’t everything in life…

Kodos to him though he living life how he wants to…

  A true t-man. 

  The type that inspires. Got balls?

  I tip my hat to him.
