Pat Tillman Afghanistan Arizona Cardinals jersey returns to Arizona

A Pat Tillman No. 40 Arizona Cardinals jersey hung inside the Pat Tillman USO Memorial Center at Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan from 2005-21.

On Sunday, it returned to Arizona.

Before the kickoff between the Carolina Panthers and the Cardinals at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, the Pat Tillman Foundation was presented with the jersey, which was rescued from Afghanistan when the troops were withdrawn.

The jersey had originally been donated to the USO by the NFL and had become the mainstay of the center in Afghanistan.
