Pat Tillman never thought of himself as a hero. His choice to leave a multimillion-dollar football contract and join the military wasn't done for any reason other than he felt it was the right thing to do. The fact that the military manipulated his tragic death in the line of duty into a propaganda tool is unfathomable and thoroughly explored in Amir Bar-Lev's riveting and enraging documentary.

During the closing credits, it is stated that Pat Tillman's mother, Dannie, "now arranges funerals at a Catholic cemetary." The correct spelling is cemetery. See more »
We have been asked over and over again, 'What can we do for your family?' And it makes me sick. It's not about our family. Our family will never be satisfied. We'll never have Pat back. But what is so outrageous is that this isn't about Pat. This is about what they did to a nation.

I have to admit that I thought Pat was going to be that jock that I've grown up to despise. The meat head, all muscle and loud but of course thats not what he was and when you are introduced to his family in this film you see he is from the best stock.
Someone earlier in one of the reviews said the family where what real American families where all about and this resonated with me. I grew up in Dublin and was brought up to believe the Americans were the good guys and you know what I thought they where too. Unfortunately over the last number of years, preceding the war in Iraq and most probably starting with Vietnam I've started to have my doubts about the direction this once cherished country of mine was taking, I started to see through its lies and listen to the tiny minority of people who where being drowned out by the media and the politicians and the Army. The Tillmans are just another causality in this long list of brave people standing up for what they believe is right and what happened with their son as being wrong.
This is another story that all Americans and people from other countries should be made watch. This is the truth trickling out from behind the bull that we are fed through our TVs by a complicit media. There is something seriously rotten at the core of Western Govts and the more people that are aware of this the quicker we can deal it.
