New Mexico Delegation To Host Virtual Military Service Academy Nominations Event Thursday


At 7 p.m. MT on Thursday, Sept. 8, U.S. Senators Martin Heinrich and Ben Ray Luján, and U.S. Representatives Melanie Stansbury, Yvette Herrell, and Teresa Leger Fernández will bring together representatives from U.S. Military Service Academies for a virtual Q&A session.

The conversation is an opportunity for high school students and recent graduates to ask questions about the nomination process and attending U.S. Military Service Academies. The New Mexico delegation is currently accepting online applications for nominations to enter an academy in Fall 2023.

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 application process is currently open. The deadline to apply is October 7, 2022.
