Charles Tillman, who grew up in a military family, returned home to Fort Hood, Texas, last Thursday to make a special delivery to the Darnall Army Medical Center.
"I have these lockers in Chicago in other children's hospitals and I felt like it was a good fit to put one at Darnall for the military," Tillman told the Killeen Daily Herald. "We want people to use it and to use it all day. We just want to make their stay somewhat comfortable while they're here."
