Freed Royal Marine Alexander Blackman has a new job finding employment for wounded veterans following his release from a three year jail term for the death of a Taliban fighter in Afghanistan.
Alex has joined a new scheme called ExFor+ who help wounded servicemen to find work.
He declared: ‘I cannot stress enough how great it feels to be useful again to society – and to be able to contribute to the household finances again.’
Yesterday he attended the official launch of the new service, called ExFor+, at the Houses of Parliament.
Sgt Blackman – known as Marine A – said he wanted to devote himself to helping those in need.
He spent 1,277 days behind bars for shooting a mortally-wounded Taliban fighter in Afghanistan.
