Congressman Burgess Owens is seeking a wounded warrior or medically retired veteran for a position in his West Jordan district office.
Those chosen for this special fellowship will work with the military and veteran constituents to handle veterans-related casework and act as a facilitator between constituents and federal, state, and local agencies.
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 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 receive a 20-year or Temporary Early Retirement Authorization (TERA) retirement are not eligible for the program.
Team Owens is excited to be working with the House of Representatives to help make sure veterans and military personnel living in America have access to our federal government and the care and services they have earned.
