Local Marine is competing in 2013 Warrior Games

Jorge Salazar lost his legs in Afghanistan

A Marine from Delano is competing in the 2013 Warrior Games in Colorado less than a year after losing both his legs.

Jorge Salazar joined the Marines after graduating from Cesar Chavez High School in 2008.

He was injured while serving as a Marine rifleman in Afghanistan last August.

But that hasn't stopped him from living an active lifestyle.

The Wounded Warrior Games is a paralympic style competition with multiple events.

The events started over the weekend and continue through Thursday.
