Houston, TX- Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) is seeking a wounded warrior or medically retired veteran for a two-year paid fellowship in his Kingwood Office.

The individual chosen for the fellowship will work with the military and veteran constituents to handle veterans-related casework and act as a facilitator between constituents and federal government agencies. In addition, they will conduct outreach to the local community.

“Our nation’s warriors are the best that we have,” said Congressman Ted Poe. “America's service members are a cut above the rest and we will always support them. I am pleased to work with the House of Representatives to ensure that veterans and military service personnel in Texas’s Second District have access to federal government services and the care they deserve.”

 The Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program was established by the House of Representatives to provide employment opportunities for wounded or disabled veterans within member offices. The program is limited to veterans who have served on active duty since Sept. 11, 2001, with less than 20 years of service and have a minimum 30% disability rating from the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Interested veterans should submit a resume, copy of the last DD214 issued, and letter from the VA indicating a 30 percent or greater rating, which is not necessary if medically retired, to housewoundedwarriors@mail.house.gov.
