Tim Tebow Honors Wounded War Veteran

Ad Feedback

Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow took time away from his off-season training schedule to celebrate a true warrior.

Tebow recently read about U.S. Army Ranger Romy Camargo, a wounded Afghan war veteran, and knew he had to meet him.

Camargo was shot in the neck during a combat mission in Afghanistan and is now quadriplegic.

Tebow surprised the ranger during a benefit event in Tampa, Fla., March 9.

"I couldn't believe it. I was like, 'Wow!'" Camargo said.

"You see kids and they're like, 'You're my hero.' I do nothing special. Athletes do nothing special. We play a silly game," Tebow said. "But here's someone who put his life on the line for our country, that's a real hero."

"I believe I'm going to get up out of this chair even if it takes me the rest of my life. Well, I got the rest of my life to do it," Camargo added.

The act of good will is just one of many for Tebow.

He also recently dropped by to play football with a 4-year-old who's battling leukemia.
