Double Amputee Retired Marine Carried by Wife

Heartwarming

This image taken by photographer Sarah Ledford shows Kelly Cottle, 24, carrying her husband Jesse Cottle, a double-amputee

When retired Marine Jesse Cottle needed strength, his wife lifted him up — in more ways than one.

An inspiring photo of Kelly Cottle carrying her husband on her back is going viral online. Jesse, a double-amputee who lost his legs to an IED in Afghanistan, wraps his arm around her chest as she stands in the water.

Photographer Sarah Ledford posted a pic of the smiling couple on Facebook this month with the caption, “Cutest. Couple. Ever!” It has earned more than 7,500 “likes.”

“Jesse is not a hero for stepping on an IED,” Ledford told ABC News. “He’s a hero because of the way he has handled what was handed to him and how he chooses to continue to conduct his life with his positive attitude.”
