Members of Congress may nominate candidates for appointment to four of the five U.S. service academies: U.S. Military Academy (USMA), West Point, N.Y.; the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), Annapolis, Md.; the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAFA), Colorado Springs, Colo.; and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA), Kings Point, N.Y. Each member of Congress is allotted a limited number of nominations that they submit to each academy.

The deadline to apply for a nomination for each of the Congressional offices is October 8, 2021. As part of this process, I am looking for applicants who demonstrate exceptional leadership ability and represent the full diversity of our great state.
