The ex-gunman saved up to 800 people from enemy fire and was back in Ukraine this week.

He told The Sun: “I accepted death in Afghanistan in 2009 – I don’t fear it.

“What I fear is getting to the end and wondering if I could have done more.

“I keep asking myself, ‘If I don’t do it, who will?’ I don’t want people to suffer like I do.

“Me and my team want to change lives – and we are doing it.”

Craig, from Wythenshawe, Gtr Manchester, founded the Spearhead Foundation after struggling with his own mental health and was honored at The Sun’s Military Awards in 2020.

He received the “Overcoming Adversity” gong after a series of blasts left him with traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder and a three-quarters loss of his hearing.

But he rebuilt his life through rugby and taking part in Prince Harry’s Invictus Games.

He traveled to Ukraine in March to deliver trauma kits. Craig, who served in 2 Rifles before being discharged on medical parole in 2013, said: “We delivered 1,300 to units along the front lines in Kyiv, Odessa and Lviv.”

He and his team of four offered medical training and were asked if they would conduct frontline evacuations.

Craig said: “Others realized how difficult it was to function under artillery fire. No one wanted to do it, but I’m well prepared for those scenarios.”
