A chance to help Wounded Warriors

imgres

The office of U.S. Representative Martha McSally announced Thursday it is accepting submissions from veterans who qualify as wounded warriors for a fellowship position to be based in either the Tucson or Sierra Vista district office. The fellow would work with military and veteran constituents to handle veterans-related casework and act as a facilitator among constituents and federal, state and local agencies.

The Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program was established by the House of Representatives to provide employment opportunities for wounded or disabled veterans within Member or Committee offices. The program is limited to veterans who have served on active duty since Sept. 11, 2001, with less than 20 years of service and have a minimum 30 percent disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Interested veterans should submit a resume, copy of the last DD214 issued, and a letter from the VA indicating a 30 percent or greater rating (not necessary if medically retired) to housewoundedwarriors@mail.house.gov.

More information can be found online or by calling the Wounded Warrior Program Office at (202) 226-1965.
