They all come with a very highly trained military skill set, but have found themselves on the scrapheap when it comes to civilian work.

After years of rejection, her first task is to build up their confidence and as she coaches and cajoles them, she also sets out to prove to employers ex-military men are a valuable resource.

As it becomes clear she might have bitten off more than she can chew, will Alex successfully help these guys find permanent employment?
