Here’s a True “Profile in Courage”: Richard Tillman Speaks Out on His Brother, Pat Tillman’s, Death

The Tillman Story

Here is a man who I say deserves a true Profile in Courage Award.

Bill Maher interviews Richard Tillman, brother of Pat Tillman, on the recent Real Time.

Any person, dealing with grief over their sibling’s death, that manages to stand up for what their lost loved one truly believed in light of a media circus, is A-OK in my book.

This is speaking “Truth to Power” in its finest sense. Anyone willing to call out these opportunistic politicians who showed up at this brother’s funeral, and co-opt what he (Pat Tillman) believe against their own self-interest…

I agree with Bill Maher. I’d be happy to share a beer with Richard Tillman any day of the week…

    52%. Man, the phrase, “Watch your back,” takes on a whole new meaning, now doesn’t it?

    It’s because the military has gotten a little too good at turning off the natural switch in your head that tells you NOT to kill your fellow human beings.

    I wonder what the corollaries might be between that, and PTSD….

    As someone who strives to help those with PTSD and understands that you don’t have to “be there” to experience trauma, my deepest kudos to Richard Tillman and his determination to tell his story and also to respect his brother’s wishes. I can only imagine the pain that Pat’s family continues to feel. I hope that Richard reads this and knows that while Pat is not “with God” he is still in the thoughts of many, whether we personally knew him or not. Thank you for having he integrity to not be silenced.
