Senators Udall and Heinrich, Congresswoman Lujan Grisham to Host Military Service Academies Nights In Roswell & Albuquerque

Staff for members of the New Mexico Congressional Delegation will hold information sessions for high school students interested in applying to the U.S. military service academies. Service Academies Nights give prospective applicants and their families the opportunity to speak to representatives from each military service academy and in-state ROTC programs.

Staff members for Sen. Tom Udall and Sen. Martin Heinrich will be available to answer questions about their respective nomination processes in Roswell on Tuesday, August 27, 2013.  Staff for Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham will join staff for Sen. Udall and Sen. Heinrich at the Service Academies Night in Albuquerque on Thursday, August 29, 2013.

Four of the five service academies—the U.S. Military Academy (West Point), the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy–require a Congressional, Vice-Presidential, or service-connected nomination. The U.S. Coast Guard Academy does not require a nomination. Each academy is among the most competitive in the nation and prides itself on producing our nation’s next generation of military leaders.

All interested high school students and their families are encouraged to attend a Service Academies Night in their area to gather information about the nomination process and about each service academy.
