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


If you're interested in attending a service academy, please join us for a Virtual Service Academy Information Night providing insights and details about our nation’s service academies and the application process.

The Zoom event will be at 6:30pm PT on Wednesday, October 13, 2021; please register in advance by clicking hereRegistrants will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
