Each year, the Boston Marathon features wonderful stories of people overcoming odds and inspiring many.

This year was no different as many heroes came forward and galvanized our nation.


As thousands took to the Boston Marathon course Monday, one man carrying an American flag stood out from the rest. His name is Jose Luis Sanchez, a Marine sergeant who was wounded in Afghanistan in 2011 when he stepped on an IED while out on patrol.

The blast severely injured his right leg, and his left leg had to be amputated below the knee.


Another veteran completed the race and went back to help another participant, per WCVB:

In the closing moments of the Boston Marathon, a moment captured at the finish line is capturing the hearts of many.

At the end of the course, a man with a prosthetic leg was seen carrying a woman and the American flag across the finish line.

Earl Granville is a nine-year-veteran who lost part of leg in the summer of 2008 when his vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. Following his injury, Granville competed in multiple marathons, including Boston, Chicago, Detroit, and New York using a hand-bike.
