(The following is an excerpt from Congressman Buddy Carter’s online weekly newsletter.)
I am seeking a wounded warrior or medically retired veteran for a position in our Savannah or Brunswick district office.
The position will work with military and veteran constituents in the First District to handle veterans-related casework and act as a facilitator between constituents and federal, state, and local agencies.
It is an honor and privilege to represent so many active duty service members and veterans in the First District of Georgia. One of my top priorities is ensuring our heroes receive the help and assistance they need and deserve. There is no one better to assist with this task than one of their own and I hope interested veterans will apply.
The Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program was established by the House of Representatives to provide employment opportunities for wounded or disabled veterans within member offices.
To qualify, veterans must 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 go to https://www.usajobs.gov/ and search “Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program” for more information and how to apply.
