O’Halleran Seeks Wounded Warrior for Fellowship in Oro Valley Office
WASHINGTON – 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 Oro Valley 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 put their lives on the line in service to our country and have the knowledge and expertise to make a meaningful difference in their communities,” said O’Halleran. “I’m pleased to partner with the Wounded Warrior Fellowship to employ hardworking veterans and 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 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.
