Service Academy Nominations
Thank you for your interest in the U.S. Service Academies!
As part of serving California's 15th District in the U.S. House of Representatives, I have the great privilege each year 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. For more information, please review my page of Frequently Asked Questions for those seeking a Military Academy Nomination.
To learn more about the service academies, join us online at 5:30pmPT Thursday, October 15 for our Virtual Service Academy Information Night! We will be joined by representatives from the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and the U.S. Air Force Academy. Click here to register.
In order to be considered for a service academy nomination, please download and complete this 2020 Service Academy Nomination Application and return it with all supporting documentation to the District Office no later than 5:00 P.M. Pacific Time on Friday, November 27, 2020. If you have any issues downloading the application, please call our office at 510-370-3322.
