An unfortunate incident changed one mans life in an unexpected way. 

 

U.S Marine, Alex Minsky, was serving in Afghanistan three years ago. During that time he was caught in a roadside bomb explosion. He spent 47 days in a coma and also lost his right leg because of it. At only 21 years old, Alex was awarded the Purple Heart and sent home. Since being sent home, he suffered from a drinking problem as well as depression. One day he tried to go an entire day without getting drunk and it changed his life. While at the gym, a photographer spotted him and had Alex pose for some pictures. This paved the way for his new career as an underwear model!  If you want to hear more about Alex's amazing story, you can watch the video below.
