HillVets and WWP Announce Fellowship Selection

WASHINGTON, DC (Dec. 8, 2021) – Today the HillVets Foundation and Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) announced U.S. Navy veteran Kirsten Laha-Walsh as the recipient of the inaugural HillVets-WWP Fellowship.

“Kirsten Laha-Walsh is the perfect choice to be the first HillVets-Wounded Warrior Project Fellow. As a Navy veteran and caregiver for her retired Marine Corps spouse and Purple Heart recipient, she has a passion for empowering and supporting wounded veterans,” said HillVets Foundation Executive Director Betty Rhoades. “Kirsten just completed the HillVets LEAD program as part of Cohort 6, and we are so proud that she has chosen to continue her public policy and advocacy training. We’re humbled that she has put her trust in HillVets and Wounded Warrior Project, and we know she will make a big impact on the military-connected community.”

Announced earlier this year, the HillVets-WWP Fellowship is unique in that the fellow will serve six months as a legislative fellow for the U.S. House For Country Caucus, a bipartisan group of members of Congress who are all U.S. military veterans. The fellowship will be followed by a six-month rotation working at WWP with the Government & Community Relations team. The fellowship is open to post-9/11 veterans interested in pursuing a career in advocacy and public policy.

“After a fantastic experience in the LEAD Cohort, I was inspired and excited to move on to this incredible fellowship and partnership,” Laha-Walsh said. “I look forward to continuing to advocate for military and veteran families and learn about macro policy on the national level.”

Laha-Walsh served in the U.S. Navy, where she worked as a hospital corpsman, specializing as a respiratory therapist. She provided both outpatient and inpatient support for active-duty members, dependents, and beneficiaries while serving as a non-commissioned officer. Prior to her service, she worked in the entertainment sector focusing on logistics and coordination.

“We’re excited for Kirsten to take part in this fellowship, which will help make her an even stronger advocate for our nation’s veterans,” said Jose Ramos, WWP vice president, Government and Community Relations. “We hope she will be the first in a long line of next-generation advocates for our military service members and veterans who benefit from this partnership.”

Laha-Walsh is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Social Work at the University of Alabama focusing on the military and veteran-affiliated populations.

“She is a frontline leader who leads with her head and heart,” said Dr. David L. Albright, University Distinguished Research Professor and Hill Crest Foundation Endowed Chair in Mental Health Research at The University of Alabama, and Director of the Office for Military Families and Veterans at the School of Social Work. “Kirsten will be an asset as she is committed to the mission of the social work profession to enhance human wellbeing and help meet the basic human needs of all people, with a focus on military and veteran families.”

Senator Bernie Sanders becomes HillVets House Ambassador

Washington, D.C. (July 19, 2021) –HillVets is excited to introduce Senator Bernie Sanders (I, VT) as a HillVets House Ambassador, a Member of Congress who publicly supports the HillVets House Fellowship Program. In addition, Ambassadors consider our Fellows for initial placement, as well as permanent positions within their offices. Our growing list of HillVets House Ambassadors are dedicated to helping veterans lead a successful career in public policy.
Designed for veterans who wish to pursue a career in government, policy, and politics, the HillVets House Fellowship program provides highly qualified veterans, servicemembers, and surviving family members opportunities to serve as Legislative Fellows in Congressional Offices. HillVets House Fellows network, develop relationships with peers and mentors, and gain substantive exposure and experience within all aspects of the legislative process. Through such experiences, the fellowship provides individuals with the necessary skills to find full-time employment in a policy-related position. Additionally, housing is available for veterans who need it, and a monthly stipend is given to all HillVets House Fellows. The HillVets House Fellowship also offers participants a plethora of educational opportunities.
“I couldn’t be more grateful for the opportunity HillVets has provided me to continue serving my country. As a veteran and a patriot, I feel an imperative for progressive veterans to enter the policy arena and fight for an American experience that truly embodies our founding ideals. For far too long, corporations have sat at the driver’s seat of American policy, coopting our military and electoral process to continually mislead Americans into believing they are the beneficiaries of policy designed to protect and promote corporate interests. The veteran experience sheds light on the real-world effects of entanglements in foreign, military, veteran, and corporate policymaking, says Essam Attia, Legislative Assistant to Senator Sanders and Former HillVets House Fellow. “The veteran voice on Capitol Hill is necessary for ensuring the men and women who serve our country are doing so in the best interest of the American people and their service is honored and dignified. The role HillVets plays in providing veterans the opportunity to continue serving our nation is critical to the success of both the country and our veterans. I am proud of my military service and honored to continue to serve the people of Vermont under Senator Sanders, an opportunity to which I owe HillVets a debt of gratitude.”
As one of the least represented groups on Capitol Hill, HillVets believes the voices of military- connected individuals need to be heard. We thank Senator Sanders for giving them and their supporters a seat at the table, as well as a chance to add their perspectives, expertise, and experiences to the policy conversation that takes place on Capitol Hill.
“It is a true honor to welcome Senator Sanders to the HillVets Community,” says Jena Doyle, HillVets Director of Programs and Congressional Engagement. “I look forward to establishing an equally beneficial working relationship with the Senator and his team, and I am excited about the possibility of finding them an incredible fellow to add to their legislative team!”

I am excited to be a HillVets ambassador and seeing our community grow as a resource for our veterans and military families that want to work in Congress.”

HillVets believes that the voices, experiences, perspectives, and expertise of veterans should be an asset to the policymaking process on Capitol Hill.
