Georgia’s Tenth Congressional District is home to over 24,000 veterans, and Congressman Hice believes that those brave men and women who sacrificed for our freedoms deserve our fullest support. Our Nation's servicemen and women represent the best our country has to offer, and they must be treated with the honor and respect they deserve. As a member of the Veterans Jobs Caucus, Rural Veterans Caucus, and the Congressional United Service Organization Caucus, Congressman Hice is committed to providing for our veterans.
One of the most important services we must provide for our Nation’s veterans is access to quality care from the facilities built to serve them. The veterans in Georgia’s Tenth Congressional District have access to the VA Medical Centers in Dublin, Augusta, and Atlanta. Unfortunately, the VA has lost sight of its true mission – helping veterans – at facilities across the country. Congressman Hice continues to support commonsense and long-overdue reforms that will improve the quality and response times of veteran care while increasing accountability at the VA.
Additionally, Congressman Hice is a strong advocate for improving programs that ease the transition of veterans back to civilian life. Congressman Hice's introduced legislation - H.R. 5047, the Protecting Veterans Education Choice Act- to protect veterans’ Post-9/11 GI Bill benefits, and he continues to strive to provide veterans with the tools and opportunities necessary for success at home after they return from service. H.R. 5047 was signed into law during the 114th Congress as part of a comprehensive veterans reform package - H.R. 6416, the Jeff Miller and Richard Blumenthal Veterans Healthcare and Benefits Improvement Act.
If you are a veteran who is having trouble with the VA, Congressman Hice’s office can help. Please call the Monroe District Office at (706) 207-1776.
