Pat Tillman's regiment remembers

April 25, 2004

Fort Benning -- One of teams in competition at Sunday's Best Ranger competition was the 75th Ranger regiment the regiment fallen soldier and former football star Pat Tillman served with.

Sunday the Staff Sergeant, that trained Tillman, said he could not speak about Tillman's death. But, his wife says it was a loss that hit close to home.

"Personally to see any kind of Ranger that my husband had trained or anyone like that die is sad. I feel sorry for the family and to know that could have been my husband or it could have been one of his real close friends," says Erin Nash.

27 year old Tillman was killed last week in Afghanistan during a fire fight.
