WASHINGTON – U.S. Congressman David G. Valadao (CA-21) is seeking a wounded warrior or medically retired veteran for a position with his Bakersfield or Hanford Congressional Office.

"The Wounded Warrior Program gives back to those who have served and sacrificed for our country while creating an invaluable opportunity for congressional offices and constituents to connect with former members of the military,” said Congressman Valadao. He continued, “The Central Valley is home to thousands of our nation’s brave veterans and the addition of a Wounded Warrior Hero to our team will further improve our ability to ensure each and every Central Valley veteran has the care and resources they deserve when they return home.”

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 limited to veterans who have served on active duty since September 11, 2001, with less than twenty years of service and have a minimum 30 percent disability rating from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.

Interested veterans should submit a resume, copy of the last DD214 issued, and letter from the VA indicating a 30 percent or greater rating, which is not necessary if medically retired, via email to housewoundedwarriors@mail.house.gov.

More information can be found by calling the Wounded Warrior Program Office at (202) 226-1965 or by visiting the CAO Wounded Warrior Program webpage.

Congressman David G. Valadao represents the 21st Congressional District of California, which includes Kings County and portions of Fresno, Tulare, and Kern Counties.
