Rep Runyan Announces Fellowship Program For Wounded Vet
A fellowship being offered by the House of Representatives opens a career opportunity for a disabled Vet in one of Congressman Jon Runyan's District offices.
The Wounded Warrior Program allows a qualified applicant to serve as a case worker for two years, assisting fellow Veterans in navigating the different channels of government services and information. Representative Runyan says the candidate must be able to communicate with people and be willing to learn new things.
"It's not only going to help us out, our constituents out, but also help some of our warriors get back into the working world and figure out if they would dabble in politics a little bit."
The program is limited to disabled Veterans who served on active duty since September 11th, 2001, have a minimum 30% service connected disability rating from the VA and less than 20 years of service.
Applicants are being asked apply direct to the House of Representatives. For more information and a list of qualifications, go to www.cao.house.gov
