WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rep. Greg Walden, R-Hood River, encourages Oregon students who are interested in attending one of the prestigious United States service academies to apply for an official nomination through his office.

The service academies include the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado; the Military Academy at West Point, New York; the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland; and the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, New York.

“It is always an honor and privilege to nominate outstanding young Oregonians to our nation’s service academies each year,” Walden said. “I encourage students who are eager to grow intellectually, lead by example, and serve our country to apply for a nomination to one of the prestigious service academies through my office.”

Nomination applications must be submitted to Walden by Wednesday, Oct. 31. Walden’s formal nominations will be announced in late December. Final selection for admission to the service academies will be determined by officials at each respective academy in early spring.
