Three soldiers who were wounded during active duty were honored at the Florida State - Boston College game.

Luke Murphy, Ledell Williams and Patrick Zeigler walked onto the seminoles' field between the first and second quarter and were recognized for their bravery and accomplishments.

The crowd went wild and chanted "USA" as the military heroes waved to the fans in the stadium.

Zeigler was wounded during the Ft. Hood, Texas Army Base attack and is excited to be back at his alma mater.

"It's just an incredible feeling to be back here, especially with a full stadium and everybody pumped up for the game. I've got awesome seats in the president's box and I feel great to be here," said Zeigler.

The men are members of the wounded warriors project which aims to help men and women who are injured during combat. Murphy is currently a junior at FSU and Williams' son is also a student.

    The Wounded Warrior Project is a terrific place to make a donation. Take the time to google it and see the great work that they do. Send them $20. Those guys gave a lot more than $20 worth of their lives.

    I was at the game and the tribute brought tears to me eyes and joy to my heart. It's a great reality check for all of us to realize how precious life is and what we have to be thankful for. I'm proud to be an American and I'm proud to be an FSU University Club Member! Gob Bless Luke, Ledell, Patrick, their families and all of our soldiers.
