Each year Congressman Stutzman recommends a select few of Northeast Indiana’s best high school graduates for admission to the nation’s service academies — Army, Navy, Air Force and Merchant Marine. When applying for a nomination to a service academy, an applicant must apply to both the respective academy and through the congressional office. The deadline for filing is 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 1.
To help any students interested in learning about the process and the requirements necessary to apply for nominations to the U.S. Air Force, Merchant Marine, West Point, Naval, and Coast Guard Academies, Information Sessions will be held in early October to answer questions, give out applications, receive applications, and confirm items that have already been submitted. Warsaw will host an information session from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9, at the Warsaw Public Library.
Academy nomination applications for Indiana District 3 are due Nov. 1, 2014. An Academy Committee of retired military personnel will vet the applications and interview the candidates. This year’s interview date is Wednesday, Nov. 15, so the Saturday, Nov. 1, deadline is very important to meet.
