There are more than 2.5 Million veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars returning home from over-seas deployment. Many recognize how decisions made in Congress greatly impact and have long-lasting effects on their lives as well as the lives of their family and friends. At the same time, they see the lowest percentage of Congress made up by veterans in generations. In short, their expertise and opinion are underrepresented in the halls of power. Vet Voice Foundation (VVF) seeks to assist veterans interested in gaining experience to actively impact policy on Capitol Hill by utilizing their practical, unique and diverse skill sets.

The mission of the Vet Voice Foundation Fellowship Program is to recruit, train, support and place veterans in Congressional offices, in order to build a bench of high quality veterans who are experienced in how Congress works and who understand how public and foreign policy is developed, authorized and executed.
