Traverse City - Congressman Bergman announced today that his office will be participating in the Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program through the House of Representatives. He is seeking applications for a Wounded Warrior or medically-retired Veteran for a full-time fellowship position at his Traverse City office.
Congressman Bergman said the person chosen for the special fellowship will work with military and Veteran constituents to handle Veterans-related casework and act as a facilitator between constituents and federal, state, and local agencies.
“We made a promise to our Veterans to care for them when they return, and making sure we honor that commitment is one of my highest priorities. That’s why I’m pleased to be working with the House of Representatives to help make sure Veterans and military personnel living in Northern Michigan and the Upper Peninsula have access to the care and services they have earned.”
The 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); and
Veterans who are in receipt of a 20-year or Temporary Early Retirement Authorization (TERA) retirement are not eligible for the program.
Interested Veterans should go to https://www.usajobs.gov/ and search “Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program” for more information and how to apply.
