I will host a Military Service Academy Day to inform those interested in applying for any U.S. Service Academy. Those who attend will have an opportunity to speak with representatives from the United States Air Force Academy, United States Coast Guard Academy, United States Merchant Marine Academy, United States Military Academy, United States Naval Academy & Army and Air Force ROTC.
This year's Academy Day will be on Saturday, September 17, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. You can find more information on the flyer, located here. The nomination packet can be found here.
