Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Service Academies. As your Senator, I have the privilege each year of nominating my constituents for selection in four service academies: U.S. Military Academy, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy. The U.S. Coast Guard Academy does not require a congressional nomination for appointment. I wish you the best as you pursue your goal of selfless service to our country.
