Medal of Honor recipients received a heroes welcome Friday night at Mustang-Panther Stadium in Colleyville, Texas.
They, along with first responders, were honored at the Colleyville Heritage High School football game.
The Medal of Honor recipients arrived at the stadium with a motorcycle escort, and they were welcomed with cheers.

Don "Doc" Ballard (US Navy), Joe Marm and Robert Patterson (US Army) will share their experiences and views with students and others.
