Lance Corporal Cassidy Little, who is helping to front this year's Poppy Appeal, lost his lower right limb in a blast while serving in Afghanistan in May 2011.
He has since participated in a theatre project run jointly by the Legion and The Theatre Royal Haymarket Masterclass Trust, which aids the recovery of service personnel.
He told ITV's Daybreak how the Royal British Legion is helping him look to the future.
Pop groups The Saturdays, Union J and Luminites launched this year's Poppy Appeal with a concert at RAF Northolt.
A group of girls - whose fathers all serve in the Armed Forces - are aiming to top the charts with the official 2013 Poppy Appeal single.
