Long Branch, N.J. – Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06) hosted a U.S. Service Academy Day at Naval Weapons Station Earle, Leonardo Pier Complex last weekend. The event provided 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 focused on the admissions process, steps to obtaining a congressional nomination, and lifestyles as Cadets or Midshipmen at the academies. Interested students had 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 inspired young people of New Jersey’s Sixth Congressional District to come and explore the many opportunities that our academies have to offer.”
