War-Wounded Amputee Runs Boston Marathon Hoisting Huge American Flag

 Boston Strong, and then there's Jose Sanchez.

Four years after two brothers from Kyrgyzstan detonated home-made bombs in pressure cookers at the finish line of the annual race, killing three and injuring hundreds -- including 16 who lost limbs -- Sanchez decided to join the race.

Sanchez is a retired Texas Marine Staff Sergeant who was badly injured while serving in Afghanistan in 2011. He rarely talks about his injuries, including one leg amputated at the knee after he stepped on an IED. He says the injury left him introverted and anti-social. In fact, for five years he didn't open a gift his fellow troops had given him.

Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
