MacArthur Announces House Wounded Warrior Program
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom MacArthur today announced that the Third Congressional District will now be accepting applications for the U.S. House of Representative’s Wounded Warrior fellowship program.
The position to be filled is a Field Representative for the Office of Congressman MacArthur. This individual would be responsible for facilitating and coordinating responses to a wide range of requests from constituents, outreach to community organizations, and working with existing staff on a wide range of issues.
“As a Representative of over 65,000 veterans, I am excited about adding another veteran to my district staff. This is a great opportunity for one of our nation’s heroes to join our team and continue in their proud tradition of public service,” said Congressman Tom MacArthur. “I look forward to working with this Wounded Warrior to provide our district with the best possible constituent services and I am grateful that our district was selected for this prestigious program.”
The Wounded Warrior Program was established to create fellowships that provide employment opportunities within the House of Representatives. The fellowships will provide veterans with experience and exposure to ultimately broaden their scope of transition opportunities.
According to the Wounded Warrior Program, applicants must have served on active duty since September 11, 2001, and have a 30 percent or greater service-connected disability rating and less than 20 years of service. In addition to a current resume, applicants must submit a copy of their DD214 and a VA letter confirming that they have at least a 30 percent service-connected disability rating.
