McKeon Announces Service Academy Appointments

U.S. Rep. Howard P. "Buck" McKeon (R-CA) today
announced that fourteen young people from the 25th Congressional
District have been appointed to our nation’s prestigious service
academies and preparatory schools.

“I am proud of all our students who were admitted to our nation’s service academies this
year,” said Rep. McKeon. “These young men and women have spent years
excelling in their studies and extracurricular activities to gain
admission to these fine institutions. Most admirably, they have
demonstrated a love and commitment for our country which will lead them
to rewarding careers as officers in the United States Military. I
congratulate all of the new admits, and wish them great success in
their academic and career pursuits.”

The following students from the 25th Congressional District have accepted appointments to the United States Service Academies:

Each year, members of Congress submit nominations of students from their
districts for admissions to one of the four service academies - the Air
Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., the U.S. Military Academy at
West Point, N.Y., the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., and the
Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, N.Y.

Students entering the service academies receive formal military training, a bachelor's
degree and an officer's commission in one of the four branches of the
military. The students receiving appointments will enter the academies this fall.
