Press Release

VILLAGE OF OAK CREEK—Today, Congressman Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01) announced he is seeking a wounded warrior or medically retired veteran for a Wounded Warrior Fellowship position in his Flagstaff District Office. If chosen for the fellowship, the veteran would work closely with both active duty and veteran constituents to handle veterans-related casework and act as a facilitator between these constituents and federal, state, and local agencies.

“Veterans have made immense sacrifices for our country and they deserve access to the best possible care and opportunities when they return home,” said Rep. O’Halleran. “I am pleased to partner with the Wounded Warrior Fellowship to employ hardworking veterans and to ensure that Arizona servicemembers, both former and active duty, have advocates within their federal government.”

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 available 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;
  • and 20% or greater service-connected disabilities (waived for veterans 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.
