Service Academy Nominations

One of my duties as United States Representative is nominating outstanding young people from New Mexico to our nation's military service academies. The President of the United States, the Vice President, Members of Congress, and other agencies and organizations have the authority to nominate individuals to a military service academy, and I have put together the following information for high school students or recent graduates who want to dedicate their talents and leadership in service to our country.

Our 2017 application process runs from April 5 through Oct. 13, 2017. 

The last Fall Academy Information night for the Class of 2022 will be held this August.
Date and Time: Tuesday, August 29th from 6pm – 8pm
