COLUMBIA, SC  (WLTX)--The Riverbanks Zoo and the Carolina Raptor Center returned a bald eagle to the wild in honor of Veteran's Day today.

The eagle, named Patriot,  was brought to Riverbanks earlier this summer, and has been treated for a foot injury, along with a number of other wounds.

After weeks of medical care by zoo staff and folks at Carolina Raptor Center in Charlotte, they released Patriot near the Village at Lake Murray in Columbia.
