Albuquerque, NM - The United States Marshal Service in New Mexico is
proud to announce its’ new involvement with the Wounded Warrior program. The
Warriors to Work program helps Wounded Warriors transition back into the
civilian workforce by providing career counseling services and job placement
The Albuquerque Office of the United States Marshals Service has recently taken
on a new volunteer from the wounded warrior program and incorporated him into
the everyday administrative workings of the office. The goal of the Wounded
Warrior Program partnering with the United States Marshals Service in
Albuquerque is to give returning service men and women who were injured or have
psychological related injuries a chance to transition from the military life to
the civilian sector by offering them an opportunity to either work or volunteer
so that they can learn the needed skills to start working as a civilian.
Qualified candidates of the Wounded Warrior Program can earn money through the
Department of Veterans Affairs, and the VA Vocational Rehab section as part of
the work pay experience.
The District of New Mexico is proud to welcome Justin Tauriainen as the first
Wounded Warrior Volunteer. Justin was enlisted in the United States Army from
2005 to 2009 and was based out of Fort Richardson in Alaska. He served in Iraq
from October 2006 until he was injured by an Improvised Explosive Device in May
of 2007. Justin left the Army in 2009 as an E-5 Sergeant. Justin currently
balances his time between attending college and volunteering through the Wounded
Warrior Program with the Marshals Service in Albuquerque.
"In one of its proudest moments, the Marshals Service for the District of New
Mexico is honored to participate in the Wounded Warrior Program; I am grateful
for the selfless service of many that serve in our Nation's Armed Services and I
am truly honored that Justin and the Wounded Warrior Program is now a part of
the Marshals Service Family" said United States Marshal Conrad E. Candelaria.
