U.S. Marine Alex Minsky lost his leg and nearly died in Afghanistan three years ago. After recovering from a coma and learning to use his new prosthetic leg, the Purple Heart recipient fell into depression and started drinking. Then his younger brother died unexpectedly. His drinking and depression got worse. He challenged himself to abstain from drinking for one day. That happened to be the day he was discovered by a photographer. Since that time he has been posing for photos, showing off his tattoos, muscles and his war injuries.
