Wounded vets meet Boston Marathon bombing victims
BOSTON (AP) — Wounded veterans from across the U.S. and survivors who lost limbs in the Boston Marathon bombing drew inspiration from one another Thursday as they swapped stories and worked to raise public awareness of the challenges they face.
Marc Fucarile, who had one leg amputated and severe injuries to the other after bombs exploded near the marathon finish line on April 15, said he was honored to meet the veterans.
“It’s reassuring to talk to a wounded warrior that has the same injuries that I have and see their success and see their progress, it’s reassuring to me that I can get there and life will be better,” said the 34-year-old from Stoneham.
