This is #PanthersNation, and we don't need any more reasons to love our team, but Carolina Panthers' Running Back DeAngelo Williams made fans proud once again.

Williams tweeted out a photo Monday morning of a Marine in dress uniforms, side-by-side with his own business class ticket.

The photo was accompanied by the caption, "I always give up my seat to military if my seat is better! I truly appreciate our troops #flyingtherightway"

He also posted on Facebook the following before giving his ticket away: "He just doesn't know it yet but he will be sitting in this seat when he boards the plane I always give up my 1st class seat! #isalutethetroops!"

But there was also talk on social media where some people stated the move was for PR reasons and the man was simply posing as a marine. However, Williams responded in a tweet about his actions.

He also responded on Facebook posting the following: "I always do that and for those of you that are saying I shouldn't have posted keep calm and enjoy my page and happy 4th of July (it's called being patriotic for life)."
