Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) is currently accepting applications from highly qualified students seeking an appointment to one of our Nation’s service academies. Students who are seeking a nomination must submit a completed application to Hice’s Milledgeville district office by October 9, 2015. Congressman Hice has the honor of nominating eligible students to the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, and U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point. The U.S. Coast Guard Academy is the only one of the service academies that offers appointments solely on the basis of a nationwide merit-based competition, and therefore, no congressional nomination is needed.

“The United States is home to the best service academies in the world,” said Hice. “While traveling the district, I’ve had the privilege of meeting some fantastic youngsters, and I know that many of our students would make great additions to these prestigious academies. I look forward to working with our 10th District students as they embark on the journey to serve our Nation.”

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.
