BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan: Warrick Dunn of the Atlanta Falcons and Larry Izzo of the New England Patriots toss autographed footballs to members of the U.S. led Coalition in Afghanistan prior to the opening of the Pat Tillman USO Center April 3 in Bagram. The center is named in honor of former Arizona Cardinals safety Pat Tillman, who was killed in eastern Afghanistan on April 22, 2004. (Photo by Sgt. 1st Class Darren D.

And a year after his death, he is remembered on ESPN and in Arizona.
