Defense & National Security
As a Member of Congress, fulfilling the Constitutional duty to provide for the safety and security of the American people is Congressman Hice’s top priority. Our military is the greatest in the world – bar none. We owe our freedoms to the actions of our brave soldiers, airmen, sailors, and marines. In this day in age, our Nation faces threats from every corner of the world, from lone-wolf terrorist attacks to highly sophisticated cyber-attacks. Congressman Hice knows that the United States must make strategic investments to maintain readiness and retain our military superiority. He will continue to ensure that our military has the support it needs to protect and defend our country.
Congressman Hice is proud to represent a piece of Fort Gordon – the critical installation home to the U.S. Army’s Cyber Center of Excellence, which is tasked with the essential mission of providing for the Army’s force modernization for Cyberspace Operations, Information Services, Signal/Communications Networks and Electronic Warfare. In these increasingly dangerous times when state-sponsored cyber-attacks occur with regularity, the professionals at Fort Gordon bolster our national security by protecting our Nation in cyberspace, while subverting and denying adversaries access to critical information structures. Congressman Hice is honored to continue to work to ensure that Fort Gordon remains equipped with the resources needed to successfully perform this crucial mission.
