Three years ago, 21-year-old Alex Minsky was serving in Afghanistan with the Marines. He was caught in a roadside bomb and spent 47 days in a coma. He awoke to find he'd lost his right leg.

After being awarded the Purple Heart, he returned home to battle depression and alcoholism. He decided to fight against that too.

On his first day of sobriety, a photographer discovered him....and he's now pursuing a career as a ridiculously hot underwear model.

Semper Fi, indeed!
