Congressman Barry Moore Becomes HillVets House Ambassador

Washington, D.C. (March 30, 2021) –HillVets is excited to share that Congressman Barry Moore (R, AL-2) is a new HillVets House Ambassador. Along with HillVets’ growing list of Ambassadors, Congressman Moore is a Member of Congress who publicly supports the HillVets House Fellowship Program and considers our Fellows for initial fellowship placement, as well as permanent positions within their office.

The HillVets House Fellowship Program is designed for veterans who wish to pursue a career in government, policy, and politics. The purpose of the program is to provide highly qualified veterans, servicemembers, and surviving family members with opportunities to network, develop relationships with peers and mentors, and gain experience by becoming a Legislative Fellow in a Congressional office. The Fellowship gives veterans the chance to experience the legislative process firsthand while building and developing the necessary skills needed to find full time employment in a policy related position. Ambassadors, like Congressman Moore, are committed to helping veterans seek a “second service” career in policy.

“I’m honored and humbled by the opportunity to serve as a HillVets House Ambassador,” says Congressman Moore. “As a former member of the Alabama National Guard turned Member of Congress, I look forward to encouraging veterans to add their voice to the policymaking process and help Congress do a better job of serving our nation’s heroes.”

Veterans are one of the least represented groups on Capitol Hill, and HillVets believes that their voices need to be heard. We thank Congressman Moore, and the plethora of other supporting Members of Congress, for giving veterans and their supporters a seat at the table, and a chance to add their perspectives, expertise, and experiences to the policy conversation that takes place in Washington.

“The HillVets community is excited to have a supporter and House Ambassador like Congressman Moore, and we thank him for joining our mission to bring more veterans to Capitol Hill,” says HillVets Director of Programs and Congressional Engagement, Jena Doyle. “I look forward to a great relationship!”

“As the daughter of a veteran and a member of the House Armed Services Committee, I fully understand the importance of ensuring our veterans and military communities have access to the resources and opportunities they deserve. I also have the distinct honor of representing Joint Base Lewis-McChord -the largest military installation on the West Coast and one of the most well-regarded military bases in the world,” says Congresswoman Strickland. “Veterans have put their lives on the line for us, and we have a responsibility to support them when they return home to civilian life. HillVets plays such a critical role in ensuring that type of transition occurs.  I’m honored to serve as a HillVets Ambassador and I look forward to continuing the crucial work to ensure our veterans are supported during and after their military careers, in whatever they choose to do.”
