Former Marine Staff Sgt. Jesse Cottle lost his legs in Afghanistan in 2009 when he stepped on an IED. A picture taken this month at a family photo shoot near Boise, Id., shows Cottle and his wife Kelly just after their one year wedding anniversary as she carries him back to his artificial legs. "It’s just kind of normal for us but it’s cool because I think we represent a lot of people," Kelly said. "A lot of couples that are going through the same thing. It’s an honor to be able to represent that."
The photographer, Sarah Ledford, was shocked by the reaction the photo received on her business Facebook page. It has now been shared more than 3,000 times and has almost 15,000 “likes.”
