14 Wounded War Vets Pose Nude For Courageous “Always Loyal” Project

Photographer Michael Stokes’ upcoming book Always Loyal features breathtaking nude and seminude imagery of amputee veterans of the U.S. Military.

According to the project’s Kickstarter page, “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.”

And it seems Stokes’ head-on approach in confronting war’s uncomfortable outcomes in a way that honors the beauty of those who’ve sacrificed has struck a chord. In eleven days, the fundraising effort has left the $48,250 goal in the dust, and at the time of this post is at $204,476.
