Be that as it may, some facts are indisputable. Tillman was killed by friendly fire. The Army covered up this inconvenient truth with a propagandistic fabrication. Such "perception management" was standard policy throughout the war, with authorization from the very top. And Dannie Tillman and the rest of the Tillman family are the real heroes of this story.
As for the fallen soldier himself, he remains as enigmatic as he is in the film's opening shot, which finds him taping an identity spot for an NFL broadcast. His last words are reported to have been "I am Pat fucking Tillman!" This film helps restore the integrity of who he really was.
