Charles “Bo” Prosch

Bo ProschAs the son of a career Army infantry officer, Bo Prosch grew up all over the world. He graduated from Wake Forest University in 2004 as an Army ROTC scholarship recipient and a Distinguished Military Graduate. After graduating from Ranger School, he served as a rifle platoon leader with the 82nd Airborne Division in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Upon separating from active duty in June 2008 as a infantry Captain, he began searching for a job on Capitol Hill. Bo soon learned that 95 percent of getting a job on the Hill is having a job on the Hill. The Washington Scholars Veterans Congressional Fellowship has given him the prerequisite skills and the ability to locate a permanent congressional staff position once his fellowship is completed. He is currently assisting the Military Legislative Liaison in the office of Senator Ensign (R-NV) as a congressional legislative fellow. As a fellow, Bo has been able to use the knowledge he gained as a combat leader and Army officer to affect legislation that involves our uniformed service men and women everyday.
