But that didn’t stop Sanchez from fulfilling his dream by completing Monday’s Boston Marathon, just as he did last year, carrying the American Flag.

Sanchez, who was wearing a “Semper Fi” t-shirt while completing the marathon told reporters that he completed the race as a charity member for the Semper Fi Fund, which supports wounded veterans.

Sanchez completed the race in 5-and-a-half hours and photos of him completing the race went viral across the Internet:

    American Flag – Daily Snark is a little boring.
