O’Halleran Welcomes Wounded Warrior Fellow to Flagstaff Office
FLAGSTAFF – This month, Congressman Tom O’Halleran (AZ-01) will welcome Tyler Flores to join his Flagstaff office as a Wounded Warrior Fellow to work closely with both veteran and active duty constituents to handle veterans-related casework and to help act as a facilitator between constituents and federal, state, and local agencies.
“Veterans have served our country bravely and have the knowledge and expertise to make a meaningful difference in their communities,” said O’Halleran. “I look forward to seeing the good Tyler will do as a strong advocate for both former and active duty servicemembers in Arizona as we work to ensure veterans receive the benefits and honors they have earned.”
Prior to joining O’Halleran’s team, Flores served in the Army for over two years as a health care specialist before leaving to pursue his bachelor’s degree in sociology from University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee. Flores is set to begin work in O’Halleran’s office this summer.
“Following the duty of Arizona veterans and servicemembers to their country, they are often left with few resources to succeed in life beyond the armed forces,” said Flores. “By providing the tools and resources necessary for success, I hope to bridge the gap between services and personnel to foster a safe and encouraging environment for them to prosper.”
The Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program was established by the House of Representatives to provide employment opportunities for wounded or disabled veterans within Member offices.
