Service Academy Nomination

The honor of attending a service academy comes with the obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation.

Members of Congress may nominate candidates for appointment to four of the five U.S. service academies: U.S. Military Academy (USMA), West Point, NY; the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Annapolis, MD; the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), Colorado Springs, CO; and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA), Kings Point, NY. The fifth service academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (USCGA), New London, CT, does not require a congressional nomination for appointment.

Each Member may nominate up to ten individuals for each vacant academy slot alloted to our district. To request a Military Academy Nomination from our office, please complete the form below. Best wishes to you as you pursue your goal of attending one of the U.S. Service Academies and serving our country.

We are disappointed to have to postpone our Spring Service Academy Day due to the school closures. This is a unique celebration and honor I look forward to each semester. However, our office is readily available to help answer any questions your students may have about receiving a Congressional Nomination to attend a service academy. Applications to receive a Congressional Nomination will be available from Congressman Green’s office starting on May 22nd, and applications must be submitted by October 30th.

For additional information, please contact my office by phone at (931) 266-4483 or by email at sam.nienow@mail.house.gov.
