WATCH: Wounded Marine Finds New Purpose as Modeling Sensation

Alex Minsky Modeling Photos

Alex Minsky, 25, is an amazingly inspirational former Marine who lost his leg in Afghanistan after his truck ran over a roadside bomb. The horrific accident left him in a coma for 58 days. Upon returning the the U.S., Minsky went through the trials of recovery and drank his woes away as a route of escape.

One day, he decided he needed to make a dramatic change and choose to sober up. Minsky made the commitment to working out two times a day to strengthen his mind and body.

In a twist of fate, Minsky was approached by a photographer when leaving an L.A. gym and the rest is history. He has become a muse for those going through monumental challenges and feel as though all is lost.

Here are some of his most loved photos:
