Attending West Point was an unparalleled honor and led me to a lifetime of serving our country,” stated Rep.

Representatives from the following Service Academies have been invited to attend: the U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Coast Guard Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Military Academy (West Point), and the U.S. Naval Academy. Representatives from Army, Navy, and Air Force ROTC have also been invited.
This event is open to the public, and the focus will be on students interested in starting the Service Academy nomination process in 2020.
