WASHINGTON— Today, Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) announced that he is accepting applications for a new Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program position in his office.
The Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program was established in 2008 to provide wounded and/or disabled veterans with an opportunity to gain experience in Congress. These two-year paid opportunities provide veterans with the experience and exposure to broaden future career prospects.
“Our nation’s disabled service members have sacrificed so much for our freedoms,” said Mullin. “With military careers often cut short by life-altering injuries, it is critical that we provide the tools, resources, education, and experiences that disabled veterans need to develop new passions and secure new employment. I am pleased to be working with the House of Representatives to lead by example and ensure that our veterans have access to meaningful career opportunities in Congress. I encourage all eligible veterans to apply for our two-year paid fellowship position.”

The Wounded Warrior Fellowship 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 are in receipt of a 20-year or Temporary Early Retirement Authorization (TERA) retirement are not eligible for the program.
