Staff Sgt. Jose Luis Sanchez has finished his second Boston Marathon since losing a leg in a 2011 tour of Afghanistan.
“I just felt that I had to run the Boston Marathon. I wanted to run the race and support the bombing survivors, to show them that life goes on and all you have to do is just push through it”
Well you have done that, sir! TWICE!

It seems he lost some of his spirit after it happened. But that didn’t keep him down for long!
“I want to lead by example,” he declared. He continued, “I’m not going to go up to other amputees and be like, ‘You can do it!’ Instead, I hope that some people see what I’ve done and it invokes that fire within them to get over whatever is holding them back.”
