Monroe, GA – U.S. Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10), U.S. Senator David Perdue, and Jefferson County are working with community partners to host Helping Our Heroes, a veterans’ appreciation event, on Saturday, November 18th at the Jefferson County Leisure Center.  Veterans are invited to enjoy a continental breakfast and turkey giveaway, while receiving information on filing claims, veteran housing, benefits, suicide prevention, support for those with disabilities, employment, and more.

“Our veterans deserve the utmost respect for protecting our freedom.  Although one event is not enough to express our debt of gratitude, I hope that on November 18th our local heroes will know how grateful we are for their service and that we always will hold them in the highest regard,” Congressman Hice stated.

“Our country’s responsibility to our veterans does not end when we welcome them home from the front lines,” said Senator PerdueThese women and men have made great sacrifices to serve our nation.  Our team gladly stands by to serve Georgia’s veterans.  As the home of U.S. Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine bases, Georgia has had a long and proud military tradition.  While there is no way to repay our debt to our veterans, I hope this event will begin to show our deep appreciation.”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
