Heisman trophy winner, Olympian, NFL star, turned MMA fighter Herschel Walker visited Oregon Army Reserve members at Camp Withycomb on Thursday.

Walker visits troops all over the country to talk to them about his battles with mental illness in an attempt to remove the stigma. He hopes by showing soldiers that a tough guy like him can be plagued by mental illness and get help that, if needed, they will too.
