Santa Barbara - Congressman Salud Carbajal (CA-24), member of the House Armed Services Committee, announced today that his office was selected to participate in the House of Representatives' Wounded Warrior Fellowship Program.
Carbajal’s office is now accepting applications from wounded warriors for a two-year paid fellowship out of his Santa Barbara office. The wounded warrior will work with Central Coast constituents to handle veteran-related casework, serve as a community outreach liaison, and act as a facilitator between constituents and federal, state, and local agencies.
“There is no one better equipped to assist our Central Coast veterans than someone who has also served our nation," Rep. Carbajal said. "It’s an honor to participate in this wounded warriors program and I look forward to bringing a wounded warrior on our team to continue serving the unique needs of our local veterans and military families."
