I was honored to join President Trump at the White House today as we honored wounded warriors from across the country. We owe these men and women a debt of gratitude that we’ll never be able to fully repay, but by working together I’m confident we can improve care for our wounded warriors, their families and all veterans.
That’s why I made it such a high priority to open a Congressional office inside the West Palm Beach VA—the first of its kind anywhere in the country. Now, we have the great opportunity to hire a wounded warrior to expand our services to veterans in our community. Applications are now open to wounded warriors and medically retired veterans for a fellowship working in our office at the West Palm Beach VA.
The Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program was established by the House of Representatives to provide employment opportunities for wounded or disabled veterans within Congressional offices.
The program is limited to veterans who meet all of the following requirements: Honorably discharged, released from active duty within the last five years, terminal pay grades at or below E-5 or O-3, 20% or greater service connected disabilities (waived if you have a Purple Heart). Veterans who are in receipt of a 20-year or Temporary Early Retirement Authorization (TERA) retirement are not eligible for the program.
Interested veterans should go to www.usajobs.gov and search “Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program” for more information and how to apply.
I know there is no shortage of qualified candidates so let’s get to work!
