Rep. Mike Thompson , D-St. Helena, announced Friday that he is looking to hire a caseworker for his Vallejo office who meets the qualifications of the House of Representatives Wounded Warrior Program.
Applicants must have served on active duty since Sept. 11, 2001, have a 30 percent or greater service-connected disability rating and less than 20 years of service, according to the program.
A caseworker would be responsible for facilitating and coordinating responses to a wide range of requests from constituents.
“As a combat Vietnam veteran, it is my high honor to have the opportunity to add one of our nation’s brave servicemembers to my dedicated staff,” said Thompson. “This is an excellent opportunity for the men and women who served our nation in the Armed Forces to continue their public service.”
The Wounded Warrior Program was established to create fellowships that provide employment opportunities within the House of Representatives. The fellowships will provide veterans with experience and exposure to ultimately broaden their scope of transition opportunities, Thompson’s office said.
The salary will be commensurate with experience.
Interested applicants can go to cao.house.gov to learn more about the program. Applications can be submitted to email@example.com.
