Veteran and double amputee hopes to inspire by running multiple marathon

"One military veteran is on a mission few could even dream of trying, especially with two legs. 
Rob Jones lost both of his legs in combat. Now he's running marathons across the country to inspire others. It's the latest and perhaps the most challenging journey for Rob Jones in his mission to serve his country by helping fellow military veterans."

“My mission is to help my brothers,” Jones says. He is raising money for veterans’ charities. His last run will be on Veterans Day at the disabled veterans mall in Washington D.C. in three weeks. Jones would like you to come along for the run in Chicago. He is running at 7 a.m. at Northerly Island. It takes him about four hours to run the entire 26.2 miles."
