A double-amputee Marine pictured in a viral photo being carried by his wife hopes the image will “represent overcoming any kind of adversity, big or small.”
Jesse Cottle was in Afghanistan in 2009 as part of an infantry squad when an IED exploded, costing him both his legs.
When he returned home to the U.S. for rehabilitation in California, he met his future wife, Kelly Cottle, at a swim meet.
“The more I got to know him, the more things that would surprise me about him,” Kelly Cottle told “Fox & Friends” on Thursday.
Kelly Cottle said the two visited Idaho to get pictures with her family and the photographer asked to take a few photos of the group standing in a stream.
