Kilmer seeking veteran for fellowship in Washington, D.C.

Congressman Derek Kilmer (6th District) is seeking a wounded warrior or medically retired veteran for a fellowship position in his office in Washington, D.C.

The fellow will manage a policy portfolio, work with the military and veteran constituents to handle veterans-related casework and act as a facilitator between constituents and government agencies at the federal, state and local level.

“Veterans bring a unique and valuable perspective to the workplace,” Rep. Kilmer said. “Working on legislation and advocating for veterans and military families who ask for assistance from my office is a great way to continue serving the country.”

The fellowship is funded through the Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program, 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 visit https://www.usajobs.gov/ and search “Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program” for more information and to apply.
