concerned veterans for america

Pat Tillman

After 30 days of reconstruction, the Pat Tillman USO center reopened during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Bagram Air Field in Iraq on 27 June. The center provides service members with upgraded wireless internet, video gaming systems, large-screen televisions, 15 satellite telephones, 12 laptop computers, a library, a café, and, maybe best of all, indoor latrines. All services provided by the USO revolve around memorabilia of Pat Tillman, Arizona Cardinals safety and an Army Ranger veteran. This USO center was dedicated in memory of Tillman, for his dedication to his country, as he put his career in the National Football League on hold to join the Army after the attacks on 9-11. Tillman was killed on April 2004 in an apparent friendly-fire incident. The USO was dedicated April 3, 2005, to celebrate and honor him and all service members, who sacrifice so much for this country. Pat Tillman is, indeed, a hero whose life serves as a role model for us all.
