    Pat Tillman haunts soldier's memory...
    :eek:
    Soldier who may have killed Pat Tillman haunted by remorse
    April 20, 2014 ~ Ten years after Pat Tillman’s death by friendly fire, it’s still not certain who shot the NFL player-turned-Army-corporal in Afghanistan. But one of the three Army Rangers who opened fire says he can’t shake the fact that he might be at fault.

    Friendly fire happens in every war. And trying to cover it up happens as well. It is bad for moral to admit you have friendly fire to often.
