Washington, D.C. — Rep. Mike Bost, a member of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, announced today that he is accepting applications through the Wounded Warrior Program for a Veterans Outreach Coordinator in his Belleville District Office.  Applicants must have served on active duty since September 11, 2001, have at least a 30 percent service-connected disability rating and fewer than 20 years of service. 

“So many Southern Illinois veterans have risked life and limb for their country, and the firsthand experience of one of these heroes will be invaluable for our office,” said Rep. Bost.  “As a Marine, I am excited to help put one of our veterans to work in continuing their selfless service to their community.”

The Wounded Warrior Program was established to create fellowships that provide employment opportunities within the House of Representatives.  In addition to a current resume, applicants must submit a copy of their DD214 and a VA letter confirming that they have at least a 30 percent service-connected disability rating.
