Worth Fighting For : An Ex-Army Ranger's Journey Out of the Military and Across the US (Dedicated to Pat Tillman) Paperback / softback
by Rory Fanning
Pat Tillman was an American pro-football player who turned down a contract for GBP3.6 million in order to leave enlist in the U.S.
Army, but he was killed in action in 2004. Original reports cited enemy fire; however, investigations proved that Tillman was killed by friendly fire and that the Army had covered it up.
This occurred just days before Rory Fanning - who served in the same unit - left the Army as a conscientious objector.
Disquieted by his tours in Afghanistan, Fanning set out to honour Tillman's legacy by crossing the United States on foot.
This is Fanning's story.
