Press Release

ALBANY, GA – Last week, Jason Maxwell, a 15-year U.S. Army veteran, officially joined the office of Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) as a Wounded Warrior Project Alumni Fellow.  The Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) serves injured veterans, service members and their families through a network of programs and services, including the Warriors to Work program, which administers the fellowships. Warriors to Work matches outstanding candidates with a wide variety of employers.

“I’m pleased that Warriors to Work selected our office to participate in the Wounded Warrior Project Alumni Fellowship program and we are thrilled to welcome Jason Maxwell to our team,” said Congressman Bishop.  “As a medically retired U.S. Army veteran, Jason has a unique understanding of the challenges service members and veterans must face. I am proud to add Jason’s skill set and insights to those of the veterans, military fellow, and reservist on our staff to better serve our constituents in Georgia’s Second Congressional District.”    

Mr. Maxwell will work in Congressman Bishop’s Albany and Columbus, Georgia offices as a Caseworker, where he will assist with the wide range of requests received from constituents in Georgia’s Second Congressional District.  Mr. Maxwell will also serve as a Field Representative, representing Congressman Bishop at meetings and events.

Prior to being accepted to the Wounded Warrior Project Alumni Fellowship program, Mr. Maxwell was as a Reconnaissance Scout in the U.S. Army, serving several tours of duty in Iraq.  He is medically retired and has since been an advocate for active duty soldiers and veterans who face the same issues he did during his transition from military to civilian life.
