Pat Tillman's Mother: YGBKM

“I am shocked as to why they would select such a controversial and divisive individual to receive the award,” she told British newspaper the Daily Mail over the weekend. “There are individuals working in the veteran community that are doing tremendous things to assist veterans,” she added. “These individuals do not have the money, resources, connections or privilege that Prince Harry has.”

Smells like suck-up and virtue-signaling at ESPN to me. It certainly smells to Tillman's mother.
