When Army Corporal Pat Tillman was killed in the mountains of Afghanistan in April 2004, all of America took notice. Many readers and viewers knew that in 2002, he had given up his All Pro NFL career to volunteer to the war in Iraq. After his death, his story continued to make news when it was discovered that he had been a victim of friendly fire and a posthumous victim of a military cover-up about the incident. Like the rest of the nation, Tillman's wife Marie followed the unfolding story, but her almost immeasurable grief had been allayed somewhat by a letter that her dear husband had composed before he embarked for the front. In this book, she tells a story that no one else could and she does so with memorable grace.
