Military Academy Nominations


Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Service Academies. As your 17th 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.

You can download an application form here: Microsoft Office document icon2017 Academy Nomination Application.doc.

The application period for our office opens in August of each year and closes at 5:00pm on Friday, November 20, 2015 for those candidates who are incoming high school seniors or who have already graduated.

Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.
