Congressman Mac Thornberry Holds 13th District Service Academy Forum

Office of U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry will hold the 13th District's Service Academy Forum in Wichita Falls on April 6th

The annual event will provide information to interested students and their parents about attending the United States Service Academies.  These forums are designed for potential nominees in their junior or senior year of high school.  However, all local students, parents, and counselors are invited to attend the event.

The forum will take place on Saturday, April 6th, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Region 9 Education Center.

Representatives from West Point, the naval Academy, and the Air Force Academy will all give presentations and answer questions.  Members of Representative Thornberry's staff will also be available to explain the application process.

Thornberry said, "It is a great privilege each year for me to nominate some of our area's best and brightest high school students attend our Service Academies.  These young men and women represent the next generation of leaders in our military and our country."

As a member of Congress, Rep. Thornberry is allowed to nominate a limited number of students for each service academy.

Applications for nominations must be submitted to the Congressman's office by December 1 of a student's senior year.  After reviewing, final selections and offers of acceptance are made by the Service Academies.  The ones that are accepted by the academies receive a free education.  In return, they agree to serve the military for a minimum of five years after graduation.

You can learn more about this event on Rep. Thornberry's website or on his Facebook page.
