Marine corporal Tony Porta, 26, fell victim to an IED blast in May 2007 while serving in Iraq.
The blast killed his two best friends and left him unrecognizable - burning off much of his face and taking his arm.
The 20-year-old said he didn't believe he had a life to return to and thought no one would love him given his disfigurement.
But he was wrong.
The Maryland man met Daisy, who refused to be put off by his injuries, and they soon fell in love.
The couple married and now have a son, Kenneth Charles, named after the two other soldiers killed in the blast.
'She didn't care about my wounds. She cares about me in the inside,' Porta told CBS.
