Wittman Accepting Applications for Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program

Provided by Congressman Rob Wittman’s Office

Congressman Rob Wittman’s (VA-01) office is now accepting applications for a Wounded Warrior Fellow to work out of the Stafford district office and support the office’s military and veterans-related casework.

“No one is more qualified to assist our military members and veterans than our wounded warriors,” Rep. Wittman said. “I am honored our office was selected to participate in this program and look forward to bringing a wounded warrior onboard so that my staff and I can better assist the veterans and military families of Virginia’s First District.”

The Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program was established by the House of Representatives to provide employment opportunities for wounded or disabled veterans within member offices. This job is open to veterans who are honorably discharged, have been released from active duty within the last five years, at pay grades at or below E-5 of O-3, and have at least a 20% service-connected disability. Purple Heart recipients are exempt from the service connected disability rating requirement.

Please help Congressman Wittman spread the word about this unique program by sharing this information with your readers, listeners, and followers:

Congressman Wittman seeks a wounded warrior or medically retired veteran for two-year paid full time fellowship in our Stafford office. Interested veterans should submit a resume, copy of their last DD214 issued, and letter from the VA indicating a 20 percent or greater rating to [email protected].
