Get Inspired — and Turned on — by These Sexy Wounded Veterans

always loyal

Photographer Michael Stokes brings you Always Loyal and Exhibition, featuring some 14 wounded veterans from the U.S. armed forces, including Alex Minsky.

Stokes is best known for his photo tomes featuring scantily clad muscle men, Masculinity and Bare Strength -- the latter, released last year, had a chapter dedicated to wounded, amputee Marines. Stokes then decided to create a separate book for the men who served in the United States military, Always Loyal ($79.99)

According to Stokes:

Each veteran will have a bio page and details related to his or her injuries. The vast majority of these veterans have lost one or multiple limbs from IED attacks. So far, I have photographed 12 of these veterans, and the last two (one is female) are scheduled to be photographed within the next three weeks.

Though the other book, Exhibition ($99.99), will also include some veterans, it will be in a similar vein to Stokes' previous work: "male erotic images and figure studies of fitness competitors, personal trainers and body builders from around the world."

I knew I got into the wrong line of work.

A Kickstarter for the books exceeded its goal of $48,250, raising that amount in just 75 minutes, and now resting well over $200,000 with eight days of fundraising to go. Check out some more photos and info about the projects below:
