Rogers, Ark., April 6, 2017 | comments
Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) is seeking a wounded warrior or medically retired veteran for a position in his Rogers district office to handle veteran-related casework and act as a facilitator between constituents and federal agencies.

“Our veterans put our country before themselves at a time when we needed them most. The least we can do is give back by offering meaningful employment when they return. That is why I am proud to work with the Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program to better our service to veterans and military personnel in the Third District,” said Womack.

Established by the U.S. House of Representatives, the Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program was established to create employment opportunities for veterans within the House of Representatives. These two-year fellowships provide veterans with experience and exposure to broaden career opportunities. Positions are available in congressional Member District Offices nationwide.

Applicants must have served on active duty since September 11, 2001, with less than 20 years of service and have a 30 percent or greater service-connected disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).

Interested veterans should submit a résumé, copy of the last DD214 issued, and letter from a military Physical Evaluation Board or the VA indicating a 30 percent or greater rating, which is not necessary if medically retired, to housewoundedwarriors@mail.house.gov.

More information can be found by calling the Wounded Warrior Program Office at (202) 226-1965 or by visiting: https://cao.house.gov/wounded-warrior.

Congressman Steve Womack has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011 and serves on the House Appropriations Defense, Military Construction-Veterans Affairs, and Labor-Health and Human Services subcommittees and the House Committee on the Budget.
