United States Army Staff Sergeant (SSG) James Alan Hethcox is a Criminal Investigation Division (CID) Special Agent with the 698th Military Police MP Detachment (CID) for the Texas Army National Guard. He has had extensive combat experience deployed as a Criminal Investigation Task Force Special Agent assigned to a Special Operations Command Task Force in support of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF). He has safely returned from an 11-month deployment in Afghanistan to his loving wife, Eleanor, and stepson, Dominic Belen, of Galveston. He also has started back to work as a Tiki Island Intermediate Level police officer with the Tiki Island Police Department. He has served with the Tiki Island Police Department since October 19, 2010.

While deployed in Afghanistan, Special Agent Hethcox, worked as a Sensitive Site Exploitation Refinement Team Law Enforcement Agent at a Forward Operating Base (FOB) located near Jalalabad, Afghanistan. He also worked as the Senior Team Lead Law Enforcement Agent Training Instructor for the Afghan Special Forces at their Special Forces Training Facility at Camp Scorpion located near Kabul, Afghanistan. He was also entrusted by the Joint Task Force leadership to serve as their representative to address several Brigade-level conferences with local Battle Space Owners and Afghan officials pertaining to enemy trends and tactics as well as Afghan-led Evidence Based Operation prosecution elements. During his deployment, he provided subject matter expert guidance to both the Afghan and U.S. Joint Task Forces on the collection and handling of captured enemy material for 33 Top Secret Classified combat missions.

Prior to becoming an Army CID Special Agent, Special Agent Hethcox was a Chief Warrant Officer 2 (CW2) in the United States Army Reserve for Alpha Troop, 1st Battalion, 158th Aviation Regiment (Attack) as an AH-64D Longbow Apache attack helicopter aviator. Before becoming an Army Warfighting Aviator, he was a Special Operations Civil Affairs Specialist with Bravo Company, 1st Team, 3rd Detachment, Bravo Company, 451st Civil Affairs Battalion (Airborne).

To date, Special Agent Hethcox has earned the following military medals and awards: Afghanistan Campaign Medal with Campaign Star, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Overseas Service Ribbon, Armed Forces Reserve Medal with "M" Device, NATO Medal, Basic Army Aviator Badge, and the German Army Marksmanship Badge (Schützenschnur) Bronze.

On Tuesday, July 16, 2013, at the monthly city counsel meeting, Special Agent Alan Hethcox honored both the Village of Tiki Island, which was represented by Tiki Island Mayor Ted Kennedy, as well as the Tiki Island Police Department, which was represented by Tiki Island Police Chief Jerry Wright, by presenting them both with an American Flag that he personally flew over Jalalabad, Afghanistan, "in the face of the enemy, illuminated in the dark by the light of justice, and bore witness to the removal of terrorist forces threatening the freedom of the United States of America" on September 11, 2012, in memory of the innocent lives lost on September 11, 2001. Each American Flag was encased in a wooden display case handmade by Afghan artisans. With each flag, he also presented a framed certificate, from which the quote came, that was signed by the Team Jalalabad (TM JBAD) Commander and the Team Jalalabad  Senior Enlisted Advisor (TM JBAD SEA).
