(Washington, D.C.) – Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. (IN-08) is seeking a Wounded Warrior or a medically retired veteran to fill a special fellowship in his Evansville office.
“I am proud that my Congressional office is able to participate in the Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program. It is our duty to care for our veterans after they have so willingly protected our nation and freedoms. This fellowship provides a great opportunity for a veteran to continue their service to our nation by joining our staff and helping to assist Hoosiers in the Eighth District.”
