Abstract : This report provides the results of a review, which we initiated at the request of the Army Inspector General, of actions taken by the chain of command following the friendly fire death of Corporal Patrick Tillman in Afghanistan on April 22, 2004. Our review sought to determine whether investigations were adequate, whether Army notification of next of kin complied with regulations, and whether documentation to justify the posthumous award of the Silver Star was accurate. In addition, this report provides a summary of the concurrent investigation by the Army Criminal Investigation Command into the facts and circumstances of Corporal Tillman's death (full report issued separately). We concur with the results of that investigation.
