Peabody, MA -- On Friday, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) announced that he will begin accepting applications for a new fellowship specifically for eligible disabled veterans. The position is being sponsored by the Wounded Warrior Program, which was established to create opportunities within the House of Representatives for our nation’s veterans. The fellow will be based in the Congressman’s District office and will be responsible for helping veterans from Massachusetts’ 6th Congressional District get the support they need.
“Serving our community’s veterans is a top priority of mine,” said Moulton. “The Wounded Warrior Program gives our veterans valuable assistance in their transition from military to civilian life, while also enabling them to continue serving our country. I am thrilled to hire a Wounded Warrior Fellow for my office and look forward to expanding our veterans service operation. After all, there is no better advocate for a veteran, than another veteran."
The position available in Congressman Moulton’s District office is for a caseworker, who would be responsible for facilitating and coordinating responses to a wide range of requests received from constituents. District caseworkers also help constituents interact with administrative and government agencies by acting as facilitators, ombudsmen and, in some cases, advocates.
