Alex Minsky, Marine Who Lost a Leg and Gained a Modeling Career

1

U.S. Marine Alex Minsky lost his leg and nearly died in Afghanistan three years ago, when he and his fellow Marines fell victim to a roadside bomb. 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. Minsky, now 24, has since been posing for photos, showing off his tattoos, muscles and his war injuries.

Bride Erin Finnegan and bridegroom Noah Fulmor, both of New York, are helped by Zero Gravity Corporation co-founder Richard Garriott (R), and Bryan Rapoza as they seal their wedding with a kiss, while floating upside down, during the first weightless wedding aboard a specially-equipped Boeing 727, while flying over the Gulf of Mexico after taking off from Titusville, Florida, June 20, 2009. Finnegan and Fulmor floated into matrimony on Saturday thousands of feet (metres) above the Gulf of Mexico in what organizers said was the world’s first weightless wedding held in zero gravity conditions.
