Soldiers at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, run together for the 15th Annual Pat’s Honor Run for fallen Soldier, Pat Tillman, and his foundation, April 27, 2019. Over 200 participants gathered together for a 4.2 mile fundraising event that supports Pat Tillman scholars. These events bring together Soldiers of all components, National Guard, Army Reserve and Active Duty, as one team to support one cause. Pat Tillman was an American football player in the National Football League who left his sports career and enlisted in the United States Army in June 2002 in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks. His heroic service in Iraq and Afghanistan, and subsequent death, were the subject of national attention when he was killed by friendly fire on April 22, 2004.
