7 heartwarming veterans stories in honor of Memorial Day
from The Week
In 2010, Marine Corporal Juan Dominguez stepped on an IED while serving in Afghanistan. Dominguez was left a triple amputee. But that didn't stop him from marrying the love of his life, Alexis. To honor the vet, the town of Temecula, Calif., donated all the elements of their dream wedding — an estimated $30,000 worth of stuff, including the flowers, the venues, the photographer and the food. But the real icing on the proverbial cake? Dominguez was able to walk down the aisle with his beautiful bride in a sunset ceremony on April 27. This is just one of seven heartfelt stories.
