Internet Erupts After Marine Veteran Posts Picture & Viewers See Her Lower Half..WOW!!!

A Marine Corps veteran has received her fair share of attention after posting a series of photos. Although the pictures are deeply important to her, social media has erupted, and it’s all because of the lower half of her photos.

Kirstie Ennis has become an inspiration for many, and it’s to see the reason for that. Despite being involved in a helicopter crash back in 2012, Kirstie is directly involved in several veterans’ causes today.

Unfortunately, after the crash left her leg severely damaged and resulted in several surgeries, things took an abrupt turn for Kirstie. As disheartening as it was to hear that her leg would have to be amputated, the determined woman had one last feat to accomplish — the Walk of Britain.

According to IJ Review, “She joined other veterans from several nations on a 72-day, 1000-mile trek across Great Britain,” and she was even joined by Prince Harry. Kirstie soon underwent the definitive surgery, but she decided to use the experience to empower others along the way.

This was a hard one. There are people in your recovery who turn into your rock, and they never even truly realize it. Since my injury, I have met some of the most remarkable, and inspiring people. Chris Van Etten and Colleen Baune became pillars of strength for me even through the new challenges they faced after TJs passing. We may not be terribly close as we were in the beginning of my recovery, but I’ll always feel indebted to you. I truly don’t feel like I would be as far as I am now without you being there in the start. Thank you. I did this for you to honor TJ. All my love, and best wishes. As we finished at Buckingham Palace today, TJs dog tag was left with Prince Harry to be honored and remembered. Prince Harry has become a dear friend to us and genuine advocate for our militaries.

In order to do that, Kirstie enlisted the help of boudoir photographer Marissa Boucher to document her journey. Despite an incident over the winter that left her fighting for her life, she continued to fight for all those watching and released the photos as they were taken.

Wanting to bear it all, she further explained,

“I wanted to show the scars initially, anywhere on my body, even the disfiguring scar on my face. I wanted to portray the scars but I also I wanted to show the evolution of what I have been through. At the end of the day, the struggle of what you go through – whether it be traumatic or if you have a bad day in everyday life – the struggle is what makes you stronger.”

She’s even shared some personal photos she took herself along the way as well:

Still feels strange to look at. #amputee #papercut #daytwo ❤️❤️

Later complications would even result in a second amputation taking place – this one above the knee – and another photo shoot along with it:

Although she’s already inspired so many people, Kirstie shows no signs of stopping. In short, her message is simple as she states, “I just want my story, my photos to be used as a means to inspire people to be confident and strong!” I don’t think anyone could possibly argue that she isn’t already doing that.
