Emilio Zuniga showcases the drive of Jose Luis Sanchez.
Photographer Emilio Zuniga met Jose Luis Sanchez the day these photos were taken. “He just showed up and started working. I was at the gym at the right time that day,” Zuniga recalled. Sanchez is a retired U.S. Marine who was wounded by an IED in late 2011 in Afghanistan. “Since then I have become an Adaptive Athlete hoping to inspire and motivate others,” Sanchez wrote on his Facebook page.
