MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WSMV) -- Jay Strobino was a sergeant with the 101st Airborne Division. He was carrying out a mission in Iraq when he was shot 13 times.

Some of the bullets hit his femur, two hit his lung, and one went straight through his neck. He survived.

Saturday, Strobino managed to walk across the stage at MTSU graduating with a major in exercise science and a minor in biology.
