Applications for Service Academy nominations due



U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson is accepting applications from those interested in attending the four service academies requiring nominations: U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, U.S. Military Academy at West Point, and the U.S. Naval Academy. The fifth service academy, the Coast Guard Academy, does not require a nomination.

Eligible candidates must be at least 17 years old, but younger than 23, in the year of their admission to the academy, a United States citizen, unmarried, and a resident of California’s 5th Congressional District.

At a service academy, cadets will receive a four-year education and degree from some of the most prestigious colleges in the country. All service academies have high academic standards.

In exchange for a five-year commitment to the military, candidates selected receive a world-class education valued at $400,000. Schooling, room, board and books are all paid for. In addition, medical and dental coverage will be provided.

The service academies’ key focus is on preparing the leaders of tomorrow through leadership, mental, emotional and physical development.

Cadets will have job security upon graduation, as they will go into service as a commissioned officer in the United States military.

Interested applicants should contact Thompson’s Santa Rosa District Office at CA05ServiceAcademy@mail.house.gov or 542-7182 for an application packet and further information. Applications are due to Thompson’s office by Oct. 15.
