WASHINGTON, DC – Rep. Rob Woodall would like to remind students in the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia that applications to receive a nomination to the service academies must be submitted by Friday, October 4, 2019 by 5 pm.

“It is a great honor to nominate candidates for consideration to the service academies,” said Congressman Woodall. “Our nation’s service academies provide students with an exceptional opportunity to acquire an elite college education while developing leadership skills, undergoing superior military training, and pursuing a rewarding career in serving their country.”

The U.S. currently has five service academies – the Air Force Academy, Merchant Marine Academy, Military Academy, Naval Academy, and Coast Guard Academy. All prospective applicants ­– except those applying to the Coast Guard Academy – must first receive a nomination from a member of the Executive Branch, U.S. House of Representatives, or the U.S. Senate to be considered for admission.

Applicants can visit Rep. Woodall’s website to review eligibility requirements and get additional information.

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes significant portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties. He currently serves on the Rules Committee, the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and the Budget Committee.
