NFL player visits with Marine recruits

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman spent time with Marine recruits at MCRD Tuesday.

"I think they're all heroes in my book, and I'm just here to let them know that I really and truly appreciate what they do. I'm here trying to support and serve them," Tillman said.

Tillman's visit was sponsored by the USO as part of its morale-boosting program. He toured the areas where recruits eat, sleep and train, and even tried his hand at the obstacle course.

On Monday, Tillman spent time with service members who are being treated at Balboa Hospital.
