Long Branch, NJ – Congressman Frank Pallone Jr. (NJ-06) will be hosting a U.S. Service Academy Day on Saturday, September 21, 2013 on 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.
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 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. Graduates are selflessly prepared to assume some of the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government. It is my responsibility to nominate highly qualified and committed candidates to each of the academies. It is my hope that hosting a U.S. Service Academy Day will inspire such young people of the 6th Congressional District to come out and explore the vast opportunities that our academies have to offer,” said Pallone.
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.
