At first glance they look like any other happily married couple, it takes a split second before you realise Jesse and Kelly Cottle's unique bond.
Jesse, a 28-year-old former Marine, stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED) in Afghanistan in 2009 and lost both his legs. But he doesn't regret the horrifying incident because “If I hadn’t stepped on that IED I wouldn’t have met her. I wouldn’t take it back ever.”
The pair fell in love during a swim meet in San Diego, she was competing for Boise State and he was getting the hang of using his prosthetic legs for the first time.
"I just remember being very intrigued by him," Kelly recalls. "He was just very different and not just because of his legs, just who he was."
