Breathtaking Images Capture the Strength & Beauty of Veteran Amputees (PHOTOS)

Stokes didn't start off as a military photographer. His background is in fitness and erotic photography -- and it shows in these electrifying portraits. Far from gratuitous, they reveal the energy and vitality of these young men (and woman) who have their whole lives ahead of them.
