Marine veteran who lost his legs in Afghanistan completes his final marathon of 31-day stretch

"Just after 1:30 pm on Saturday November 11th, Veterans Day, Jones crossed the finish line, completing his odyssey in the name of other veterans."

ā€œI feel thankful for all this group of people around here supporting me. I feel thankful to live in a country that appreciates veterans so much. I feel thankful for living in a country where there are so many people that are willing to sacrifice everything for it, and Iā€™m thankful for living in a country that is worth that sacrifice that people make.ā€
