This project began when a marine of the United States  named Alex Minsky whose leg was amputated after explode a bomb in a gutter in Afghanistan in 2009, choose to be photographed showing their amputations and war scars, Strokes took out a book called “Always loyal”.

Some of the veterans saw the book and wanted to show to the public what they’ve been through that’s why Stroke decided to help them.

Strokes also said that these men have healed and are ready to eat the world, he is just paying back the trust that the people has given to them.
