Dear Friends,

Do you know someone who is interested in pursuing a nomination to a United States Service Academy?

Each year I have the privilege of nominating a limited number of people to four of the five service academies. The honor of attending a service academy comes with an obligation and commitment to serve in the military for a minimum of five years upon graduation. The application process is different from most college applications, and in order to provide an overview of the service academies and the nominations and appointments process, I host an annual Academy Day to help young people determine if an Academy or similar education is something they would like to pursue, and to help them navigate through the process.

Academy Day is held each year on the last Sunday in April at the Conference Center, at Westover Air Reserve Base in Chicopee, Massachusetts. All those who would like to attend, MUST pre-register using the Registration Form.

The United States Military Academy; United States Naval Academy; United States Air Force Academy; and the United States Merchant Marine Academy all send representatives to Academy Day.

In addition to the four service academies that require Congressional nominations, the United States Coast Guard Academy; Mass Maritime Academy; Norwich University; and ROTC programs all have representatives at Academy Day, making it a useful resource for anyone interested in pursuing an academy or military education.
