Sep 3, 2014 Issues: Education, New Jersey

LONG BRANCH, NJ – On Saturday, September 20th at 10:00 a.m., Congressman Frank Pallone Jr. (NJ-06) will be hosting a U.S. Service Academy Day at Naval Weapons Station Earle, Leonardo Pier Complex.  The event will provide a forum for students who are interested in attending one of our nation’s prestigious U.S. Service Academies to learn more about the process for admission.

The event will focus on the admissions process, steps to obtaining a congressional nomination, and lifestyles as Cadets or Midshipmen at the academies.  Interested students will have the opportunity to personally meet and speak with representatives from the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy, and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.

“Our nation’s service academies are some of the highest caliber institutions committed to graduating leaders of character, honor and integrity,” said Congressman Pallone.  “Graduates are selflessly prepared to assume some of the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government.  By hosting this U.S. Service Academy Day, it is my hope that we will inspire young people of the 6th Congressional District to come out and explore the many opportunities that our academies have to offer.”   

Doors will open at 10:00 a.m., and presentations from the Academies will begin promptly at 10:30.  Interested students and parents can RSVP to Dawn Rebscher at (732) 571-1140.
