VideoThe Tillman Story (95 minutes)

When Pat Tillman gave up his lucrative professional football career to join the Army Rangers in 2002, he became an instant symbol of post-9/11 patriotic fervor. But the truth about Pat Tillman is far more complex. Deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan, he never made it home.

When the most famous enlisted man in the U.S. military was killed in April 2004 on a rocky hillside in Afghanistan, the Army declared he had been shot by enemy fire in an act of heroism. He was even awarded the Silver Star, the military’s third-highest combat decoration. But five weeks later, the Army revealed that Tillman’s death was the result of “friendly fire.” Feeling betrayed by the Army’s lies, Pat’s mother, Mary Tillman, demanded a new investigation to reveal the truth behind her son’s death.

Former LAPD police detective, investigative journalist and author Michael Ruppert wrote, “Except perhaps for the Kean Commission report on 9/11, in my 30 years of studying and writing criminal investigative reports, government inquiries, and court records I have never seen a more cooked and doctored piece of work than the US Army’s investigation into Tillman’s death. There are crimes here.”

The Tillman Story resounds with emotion and insight, going beyond an indictment of the government to touch on themes as timeless as standing up for the truth.
