Monroe, GA – U.S. Congressman Jody Hice (GA-10) released the following statement after he presented two local veterans with military medals on Tuesday, November 8th:    

“Our nation is blessed to have courageous warriors, like Frederick Adams and Wallace Reed, who served to protect our beliefs, our values, and our democracy.  These patriots valiantly and bravely defended us from tyranny.  They protected America’s freedoms, defended the weak, and upheld the highest sense of selfless honor.  On behalf of the residents of the 10th Congressional District and this great nation, I am honored to express my heartfelt appreciation to these two deserving veterans and all of our nation's heroes for their service and sacrifice.”

The family of Mr. Wallace Reed joined him at their family-owned business, Odds & Ends, in Bishop, Georgia as Congressman Hice presented him with the following medals for his service in World War II, the Vietnam War, and postwar Korea:  The Bronze Star, Meritorious Service Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Good Conduct Medal, American Campaign Medal, Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal, European-African-Middle Eastern Campaign Medal, World War II Victory Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Philippine Liberation Ribbon, Republic of Vietnam Campaign Ribbon, Expert Badge and Rifle Bar, and Korea Defense Service Medal.  Mr. Reed was born on February 26, 1925 and served in the U.S. Navy and U.S. Army.  He is a resident of Athens and has two children, five grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren.

With his wife, Barbara, by his side, Mr. Frederick Adams, of Bogart, met with Congressman Hice at the Congressional district office in downtown Monroe.  Congressman Hice presented the Navy veteran with the following awards for his service in the Vietnam War:  The Army Commendation Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, and the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Ribbon.

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.
