America’s service academies are some of the most prestigious educational institutions in the world, that offer students an excellent education in addition to a commission as a military officer. Each year, I have the privilege of nominating students from our community to our nation's Military Academies.
On Wednesday, September 20, 2017, I will host my annual Military Service Academy Information Night at Hanford West High School. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn more about obtaining a Congressional Nomination to one of the United States Service Academies and will meet field representatives from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and U.S. Coast Guard Academy.
This informational event is recommended for all high school and middle school students who reside within California’s 21st Congressional District and are interested in attending a military academy and their families an opportunity to meet firsthand with representatives from the U.S. Military Service Academies and their local Congressional Office. Current and prospective Academy applicants can learn about the unique educational advantages available at the services academies and about the Congressional nomination process.
The U.S. Service Academies offer a unique and esteemed educational opportunity for young men and women. Accepted students receive a four year university education, room and board, medical and dental coverage and a stipend in exchange for a five year military service commitment at graduation. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity, please join Congressman Valadao and his staff for Academy Night.
For additional information, or to RSVP for the event, please call my Hanford office at (559) 582-5526.
