Service Academy Nominations

Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Service Academies. As your 25th District Representative in the U.S. House of Representatives, each year I have the privilege of nominating a limited number of people to four of the five service academies. The honor of attending a service academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation. For more information, please review my page of Frequently Asked Questions for those seeking a Military Academy Nomination. Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country. Residents of the 25th congressional district who are interested in learning more are welcome to attend my annual Service Academy Day, where representatives from all five military service academies will be on-site to answer any questions.

My annual Service Academy Day will be held virtually this year on Saturday, September 18, 2021, at 9:00 a.m. via Zoom. For more details, and to RSVP, click here.

The deadline for nomination applications is Monday, November 1, 2021.
