Wife Carries Marine
Saw this story yesterday about Jesse Cottle and his wife Kelly Forrester Cottle.
Jesse, lost both of his legs in Afghanistan in 2009 after stepping on an IED, which was caught on video by a fellow marine wearing a helmet camera. The footage was used in a documentary about Jesse called Coming Home.
After spending months in the hospital, he met his future wife in San Diego, California.
In honor of their first year as husband and wife, Jesse and Kelly decided to have some professional portraits taken while visiting family in Boise, Idaho.
When a photo of the happy couple — with Kelly carrying Jesse on her back went viral, it racked up tens of thousands of likes.
