They met with about a dozen people who have lost one or both legs from the marathon blasts.

“It was really a good visit for all of us,” said Josh Sharpe, a member of Semper Fi, an organization that helps raise money for wounded warriors.

Captain Cameron West, a Marine who lost a leg in Afghanistan, said “We felt as amputees compelled to get out here.”

The injured veterans say the patients were very receptive to their visit and are remaining positive.
