A vet decided that nothing was going to stop him from taking his fellow marine hiking to the top of a mountain in Utah, even as one of the men had no legs from an explosives injury in Afghanistan.

John Nelson carried his fellow special ops veteran friend John Blanks up 14.3 miles of steep rugged terrain so that they both could see the view from the top of the mountain.  Passersby who saw Nelson with 135-pound Blank on his back were in awe seeing them descent back down the mountain from their hike.

KTSU says that the two plan to hike Mt. Whitney in California which is the tallest mountain in the state at over 14,500 feet.

Have you ever had a friend do something incredible for you?
