Kilmer seeks veteran for fellowship

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. Derek Kilmer is seeking a wounded warrior or medically retired veteran for a fellowship position in his Washington, D.C., office.

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,” said Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor, who represents the 6th Congressional District.

“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, which was 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 past five years, terminal pay grades at or below E-5 or O-3, 20 percent or greater service connected disabilities (waived for those with 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.usa jobs.gov/ and search “Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program” for more information and to apply.
