disputed source/claim[edit]

The article incorrectly states that the M249 has a significantly higher rate of fire than the M16, which is not true, besides the fact that the M4 carbine has been standard for quite some time. Efcmagnew (talk) 05:19, 3 July 2011 (UTC)

No, it doesn't say that. It says it is capable of greater accuracy during higher rates of fire - not that it is faster, but that it is more accurate at high rates. That's not the same thing.
The statement has what appears to be a reliable source to support it.
If you wish to add clarification or amend it, with an appropriate reliable source, please go ahead - or make a suggestion here. But we do need references.  Chzz  ►  08:17, 26 July 2011 (UTC)


There are two sources of stats in the infobox. One say 92 tackles, the other 230. A recent edit has changed the number to 238 which seems unsourced but I'm afraid I don't know enough to decide between these two figures. Please can someone sort this out, perhaps put an inline ref next to the source for the correct figure? Thanks. --Mirokado (talk) 21:35, 28 November 2011 (UTC)

Synopsis is incorrect[edit]

At the very top of the article, it is stated Tillman completed multiple tours before being killed. Later you say he was killed DURING his second tour. One or the other is wrong. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Kenfo 0 (talkcontribs) 23:14, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Well, ref 2 says "Tillman served in several tours of duty, including time in Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom as well as a stay in Afghanistan to serve in Operation Enduring Freedom." The article could perhaps be clearer either in wording or which references it uses to support the content in that respect. Something interesting for you to sort out if you wish...[1] --Mirokado (talk) 23:31, 9 December 2011 (UTC)

Where was he born?[edit]

There is an inconsistency in this article, the second paragraph says he was born in San Jose, CA but the sidebar says Fremont, CA. (talk) 07:42, 23 May 2013 (UTC)

Yeah where was he born (talk) 18:07, 23 January 2014 (UTC)


OK so if was posthumously promoted to corporal from specialist, should the pictures of him alive be labelled "corporal" or "specialist"? The DOD reports cited in the article consistently refer to him as "specialist". --jpgordon::==( o ) 18:40, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

Does this alleviate the concern over any confusion that might take place as to his rank and the photograph? Regards, AzureCitizen (talk) 18:58, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
That edit is both simple and elegant; works for me. Regards, Xenophrenic (talk) 19:08, 30 August 2013 (UTC)
