Deadline for U.S. Military Service Academy Nominations Approaching
Newburgh, NY - With the deadline approaching to apply for U.S. Military Service Academies, Representative Sean Patrick Maloney encouraged students from the Hudson Valley to seek a nomination from his office. Rep. Maloney has the ability to nominate students to the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point. Students applying to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London do not need a Congressional nomination.
"As your representative, it is my honor to be a small part of one of our country’s oldest traditions of nominating the Hudson Valley’s most accomplished and motivated young people for acceptance into a service academy," said Representative Maloney. "Service Academies like the U.S. Military Academy at West Point provide a top notch education while preparing young men and women for leadership roles in our nation's armed forces.”
Interested students must submit their completed applications to Rep. Maloney’s district office at 123 Grand Street in Newburgh, NY 12550, no later than October 11, 2013. All applicants who have submitted their completed application materials will be contacted to schedule their interview with Rep. Maloney’s Service Academy Selection Board.
The application process is open to all interested high school seniors in New York’s 18th Congressional District. Students are encouraged to research the specific academies on their respective websites for further information on the nomination and selection process. Detailed information and a downloadable application are available here or also at seanmaloney.house.gov. Any questions may be directed to Oscar Dunham, District Representative, at 845-561-1259.
