Inspired by a chapter in his 2014 book, "Bare Strength", which featured wounded amputee Marines, celebrated photographer Michael Stokes has created an entire photographic volume dedicated to U.S. Gulf War veterans. "Always Loyal", a large-scale, hardcover coffee table book, showcases the beautiful side of wounded soldiers, whose injuries and/or lost limbs are detailed in intimate, exclusive photographs and information that provide a highly unique appreciation for those brave souls who have fought for the United States of America. The goal of fitness photographer Stokes-who, inspired by a shoot with veteran and amputee Alex Minsky, wanted to put a different spin on how wounded veterans were depicted-was to create a book via crowdfunder KickStarter.com. The result of the book is pure art.



"His no-holds-barred photography has captured dozens of young wounded vets in ways the public is not used to seeing them: fit, happy and proud to show themselves." - CNN "Those Sexy, Naked Amputee War Veterans Are Now Part of a Sexy, Naked Book" - Cosmopolitan """Stunning photos of the heroes who have lost their limbs in war"" - Daily Mail " "Instead of portraying male and female amputee veterans as broken soldiers, these sexy, nude photos celebrate their strength, helping to change the way we see their disability." - Metro "Gaze At These Brave (And Naked) Veterans And Feel Free To Let The Thirst Take Over" - MTV
