U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Savannah) reminds students interested in receiving a congressional nomination to one of the U.S. military academies that they must submit their completed applications to his office no later than Oct. 1.
Each year Kingston nominates deserving young men and women to the service academies.
“The 1st District has a rich military heritage. We have many qualified students who can carry on that tradition,” said Kingston. “We have the privilege of interviewing and nominating the finest young men and women to the academies each year. These are the future leaders that will serve with honor and skill in the United States Armed Forces.”
Kingston will hold a military academy day Saturday starting at 10 a.m. at Benedictine Military School, 6502 Seawright Drive, Savannah. Interested high school students and their parents are invited to attend. Representatives from the U.S. Air Force Academy, Military Academy, Naval Academy, Coast Guard Academy and Merchant Marine Academy will be on hand.
High school seniors interested in attending the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Military Academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, or the U.S. Naval Academy should apply directly with the academy as soon as possible.
Those students should contact Kingston’s office for a congressional nomination application. More information and the nomination application can be found on Kingston’s Web site at http://kingston.house.gov or by calling Brooke Childers in his Savannah Office at 352-0101 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
