Cong. Thompson accepting service academy applications



U.S. Rep. Mike Thompson (CA-5) is accepting applications from students ages 17 to 23 who are 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.

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.

Documents must be requested by Sept. 15, and returned by Oct. 1.
