WASHINGTON - Congressman Rob Wittman (VA-01) today announced that his office was selected to participate in the House of Representatives' Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program for 2017.

Rep. Wittman's office is now accepting applications for a wounded warrior to work out of the Stafford district office and support the office's military and veterans-related casework.

"No one is more qualified to assist our military members and veterans than our wounded warriors," Rep. Wittman said. "I am honored our office was selected to participate in this program and look forward to bringing a wounded warrior onboard so that my staff and I can better assist the veterans and military families of Virginia's First District."

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 have served on active duty post-9/11, have less than 20 years of active service, and must have at least a 30% service-connected disability.

Please help Congressman Wittman spread the word about this unique program by sharing this information with your readers, listeners, and followers:
