Chad Hennings was clearly shaken up. His voice was cracking a couple of times.
He asked that when we see service men and women we simply walk up to them and thank them. Said that means more to them than anything else.
He also said that at times like this, and not just the death of an athlete, that we put politics aside and focus on the loss.
Rome has dedicated his entire show to Pat Tillman and his memory. Soem things that have come out.
Tillman had over 200 media requests for an interview after he decided to become a soldier. He took none of them.
He was a college graduate so he couldahve joined as an officer and received 30K per year. He turned it down and wanted soldier's pay of 18k per year.
He was only 27.
He leaves a wife, Marie.
He was an academic all American with a 3.84 GPA. Was a college football 2nd team All American. Graduated with honors in 3.5 years of college ball.
He told his college coach Bruce Snyder that he would never accept a red shirt. He was going to be there 4 years and wanted to make the most of it.
Rome, is clearly shaken.
