The good ladies at The View today sat down with an inspiring Marine veteran who has lived a lifetime worth highs and lows in his young life.

Alex Minsky lost his leg when his vehicle was struck by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan in 2009. He sustained a traumatic brain injury and spent 47 days in a coma.

He was medically retired from active-duty and struggled with alcoholism before turning his life around. Then, one day in the gym, he was discovered by a photographer who “loved his look.”

Now he's making Marine veterans look great as an underwear model and a testament to perseverance.

Watch his interview on The View below:

We will no doubt have more to hear from Alex. Stay tuned.
