Boston Marathon, Jose Luis Sanchez, What Had Happened Was -

What Had Happened Was: 4/18/17 Oh, you didn’t know? We got you.

GAME. BLOUSES.

Staff Sgt. Jose Luis Sanchez, a retired Marine who lost the lower part of his left leg when he stepped on an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan in 2011, was easily one of the biggest heroes of the 2017 Boston Marathon.

Fitted with a Semper Fi Fund shirt, Sanchez ran all 26.2 miles on a prosthetic leg and carried a large American flag adorned with signatures from fellow comrades and friends.

Sanchez participated in the Boston Marathon last year and also in the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. He finished Monday’s race in 5 hours, 46 minutes and 13 seconds.

“I want to recognize veterans and everyone who thinks they can’t do something,” Sanchez told Runner’s World. He completed the race as a charity member for the Semper Fi Fund, which supports wounded veterans, Runner’s World reported.
