Maloney Accepting Applications for U.S. Military Service Academy Nominations
Newburgh, NY – Representative Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18), member of the West Point Board of Visitors, announced today his office is accepting applications for students from the Hudson Valley to seek a United States Service Academy nomination from his office. Rep. Maloney has the ability to nominate students to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, U.S. Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, the U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point. Students applying to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London do not need a Congressional nomination. In June, 12 students from the Hudson Valley accepted offers of appointment to one of the nation’s service academies.
"It is my honor to not only represent the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in Congress, but each year to be a small part of one of our country’s oldest traditions of nominating the Hudson Valley’s most accomplished and motivated young leaders for acceptance into a service academy," said Rep. Maloney. "Service Academies like West Point provide a top notch education while preparing our young men and women for a life of selfless service to our country.”
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 31, 2016. 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, Senior Veterans Advocate, at 845-561-1259.
