Service, Sacrifice, and Beyond…

Alex Minsky alex minsky-2

This is Alex Minsky.  A before picture.  One of the few, the proud, the brave.  A Marine.  Then in Afghanistan in 2009 a road side bomb almost killed him.  He was in a coma for over a month, and spent another year and a half in the hospital recuperating.  He had burns over much of his body and lost his right leg.  After discharge he turned to the bottle.  But sick and tired of being sick and tired, he found his way into a gym…and a new life.

 

After a lot of workouts and a lot of ink, he was approached by someone asking if he had ever modeled.  Alex thought it was a gay guy hitting on him.  No really…that’s what he said in the interview ( www.queerty.com/10-things-to-know-about-model-alex-minsky-20130403 ).  But photographer Tom Cullis thought Alex had “a movie star face with wild ink and sweat”, and convinced Alex to model for him.

 This is Alex Minsky now…a fitness and underwear model.Alex Minsky

 

 

I think it is so cute that he has a tattoo on the sock that covers his prosthetic foot.  But what’s with that tattoo on his lower belly that says DON”T LAUGH.  Of course I haven’t actually seen what’s below that tattoo, but…

somehow, I’m thinking it isn’t anything to laugh at.

 

 

 

 Alex loves avocados, plays the guitar, and works out 4 hours a day to keep that body.  He also created quite a controversy when photographer Michael Stokes posted this picture on Facebook…

alex minsky-6Stokes was notified that it contained nudity or obscenity.  Facebook removed it, and banned him for 3 days.  In a statement of support over 4,000 Facebook fans reposted the picture.  Glad to say that Michael Stokes ( www.facebook.com/MichaelStokesPhotography ) and Alex Minsky are both back on Facebook.

 

 

 

 

Alex is on Facebook, instagram, twitter, and can be seen at Model Mayhem.  And guess what?  He even looks good with his clothes on. alex minsky-5

Christopher Van Etten is a double amputee, injured in Afghanistan when two IED’s exploded in June 2012.  Like Alex Minsky he has come back full stride.  In October he hand cycled the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC and now he’s into…

 His mom says, “It’s a little weird to see my son pretty much naked all over Facebook, but I’m pretty proud of him.” ( www.bnd.com2013/11/09.2894542/we-cant-thank-this-community-enough )

 He also has a great sense of humor… Chris VE-5
