Wife Carries Her Injured Soldier Husband!

Posted June 9th, 2014 @ 8:40am

So sweet and touching!!! 

During a family weekend at the beach, Jesse and his wife Kelly got more attention than they bargained for. 

Jesse is a former Marine who lost his legs in 2009 after time spent in Afghanistan. He met Kelly after and they married last year. 

A photo of Kelly holding Jesse went viral, but they said it’s “just how they get around.” 

Jesse said she “started carrying him at the beach because his prosthetics do not support him very well in the sound…. We both believe that the husband –he’s the man – he’s the head of the household, but it’s also perfectly okay for the ladies to kind of support the man and carry the man both physically and figuratively.”
